This doleful piece is a good choice for young pianists who are adept at conveying emotion in their playing. The left hand especially has some good challenges. Numerous tied notes and thick textures are great practice for more advanced repertoire. Above the accompaniment, the melody needs to clearly come through. The frequent changes in hand positions can be difficult, making consistent fingering a necessity.
