Set in the key of E minor, “Sunset” has a bittersweet mood. The typical roles of the left and right hands are reversed: the melody is in the bass. This can make the voicing easier for younger students. However, they still should be wary that the accompaniment does not become too loud. Dynamics are a crucial element for keeping the melodic line long and moving.
