This piece has a contemplative, restful mood, perfect for feelings associate with the close of a lovely vacation. Though the accompaniment initially appears to be challenging, students will soon discover that the pattern is quite simple. They should, however, be sure to be attentive to giving rests their full value. The challenges in the right hand are due mostly to voicing. The melody must emerge from solid seconds, thirds, fourths, and sixths. This is great practice for advanced repertoire that requires bringing out melodies from thick textures.
