Light, rapid passagework fills this endearing piece. Students with good technique will have fun playing the trill-like passages. Keeping the dynamic level soft will make it easier to achieve a fast tempo. Though challenging, one should work to keep a steady pulse in 6/8. The animated articulations give the piece a graceful, bird-like character.
