To be played at an Allegro non troppo tempo, this piece consists solely of broken sixteenth note chords. It includes hand crossing, which often creates the tendency for students to fluctuate in tempo. The melodies, played by the left hand in the bass and soprano registers, should be carefully phrased. It is important to bring out harmonic changes, which will help make evident the structure and climax of the piece. The flow and energy should stay consistent throughout.
