Persistent and angry sounding, this canon is in C-sharp minor and focuses a lot on the relationship between the leading tone and tonic. Strong accents on almost every beat add to the determined character. Students should play the staccatos crisply, with a full tone. A forte dynamic level is convincing in a performance of this piece.
