In “Tone Painting No. 1” sound quality takes precedence over most other elements. More advanced students can differentiate the sound of the broken and rolled chords in the accompaniment from the melodic line in the right hand. The melody has numerous large intervals that need to be legato. A contrasting middle section has many triplets that can be difficult to play evenly and up-to-tempo.
