“Fairy Tale” is in an intriguing key, using a tonic of C and including F-sharps and B-flats. This creates an unusual effect, perfect for a fairy tale taking place in a far-away world. The left hand is well-suited for students who are most comfortable staying in one position. This hand rarely moves. The right hand has specific articulation that is important for achieving Siegmesiter’s desired sound. Short but sweet, this is a nice work to add to one’s list of accomplishments.
