Contrary motion sixths as well as parallel motion triads in first and second inversion give this piece its unique sound. These aspects are great for working on technical skills. Students will need supple wrists, coordination, as well as the ability to voice chords. Additionally, they should create long phrases, avoiding the tendency to play this piece with a vertical sound. Rests in both hands need to be distinct. A slight ritardano is effective at the end.
