Emma Lou Diemer, Another Moonlight Serenade

Emma Lou Diemer

This somber piece pays homage to Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata. Flowing eighth notes in the right hand provide harmonies as well as a grim atmosphere. These broken chords should be steady with a lot of clarity. Although the overall dynamic level is subdued, one should voice the whole notes in the left hand. Creating a long, slow crescendo to the middle of the piece increases its climactic power.
