This beautiful waltz features a singing melody line and eighth-note accompaniment in the left hand. Students can invest a great deal of emotion into this piece to make it a moving experience for the listener. What begins as simple melody and quarter note accompaniment in the upper register develops into a more ornamented accompaniment in the richer alto and bass registers. Students should pay special attention to the pedaling to ensure the clarity of the sound.
