An unsettled feeling permeates this short work. Written in the key of D minor, the piece ends on a I chord in first position. Both hands rely heavily on the use of the third and fourth fingers, helping students develop coordination between these sometimes finicky fingers. Performers may consider voicing one of the hands louder than the other to increase variety.
