Peter Tchaikovsky, Old French Song, Op 39, 16-0


Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

With a noble, yet gentle character, this piece captures numerous emotions. Mature pianists will enjoy bringing out the nuances in phrasing, rubato, and dynamics. Articulation is also an important aspect, especially in the accompaniment. The staccato notes should not be harsh but need to match the mood. Students may have difficulty with the numerous ties and may want to practice the left hand alone.
