Franz Schubert, Allegretto-000:49

Franz Schubert, Allegretto-0


Franz Schubert

Students will love this dazzling piece. Fast sixteenth notes are paired with driving eighth notes in the accompaniment, creating drama. However, much of the intensity comes from dynamics. The overall marking is piano, with frequent swells and surprising sforzando markings.

A brief moment of repose in F major interrupts the intensity of the D minor sections. Teachers should point out the relationship between the keys and the change in characters. Keeping the left hand steady and quiet can be difficult for young pianists.
