This canon is a bit longer than the other selections in the Opus 14 set. It also has an extensive amount of articulation markings. Students will encounter passages of fast staccato eighth notes as well as quarter notes with slurs. Accent marks and tenuto signs also appear frequently and need a lot of attention. A change in hand position halfway through the piece adds variety as well as an added challenge.
