The energy level is high in this vibrant piece. The left hand is in E major, and the right hand is in a C major position, creating a unique sound from the very first notes. The articulation also adds to the vivacity. Two-note slurs and staccato notes keep the music sounding perky. The indicated tempo is quite fast, making good technique and agile fingers a necessity. All of the eighth notes need to be particularly even.
