Only pianists with nimble fingers will be able to perform this short piece up to its full potential. The energy never stops; rapid sixteenth notes in tricky figurations abound in the right hand. Good fingering is crucial for being able to play the right hand with clarity and accuracy. Following the dynamic markings adds to the intensity and helps with phrasing. The accompaniment is a bit easier and should be voiced well in order to avoid overpowering the melody.
