Typical of a berceuse, this piece is similar to a lullaby and alternates between simple harmonies, such as V and I. A basic accompaniment pattern repeats throughout the entire piece, creating a rocking sound. The melody should be played gently, with attention to bringing the melodic line out when the texture thickens. Great attention must be given to voicing and phrasing in sections that have with two melodies at once. This is a lovely choice for musically-mature young pianists.
