This piece has a clear phrase structure with endings marked by cadences. Be sure to maintain a supple wrist during the tremolos in the left hand and pay attention to executing clear dotted rhythm throughout. Large chords require good voicing. This piece in E-flat Major remains optimistic despite the slow, thick chord texture. Students may consider playing the second phrase as a dramatic echo of the first phrase.
