Students should bring out the songlike left-hand melody of this contemplative piece,  legato e cantabile. Right hand accompaniment takes the form of thirds and chords on the offbeats, which will produce a feeling of unsteadiness unless the student possesses a strong sense of meter. Finally, students should take advantage of rich dynamic markings to fully express the beauty of the sunset.
