“Peasant Song” is a nice choice for advancing pianists. The texture is thick, making good voicing a necessity. Students may find the constant changes in hand positions to be challenging. Despite the frequent movement, they should still aim for a legato touch. Observation of articulation and dynamics are two other important elements. Additionally, the phrasing needs to be clear and match with the contour of each line.
