Melancholy is a bit longer than its companion works in the Opus 33 set. It is all that the name implies. The right hand plays a never changing, discontent rocking pattern. Underneath this, the melody sings woefully out. Long, legato lines are needed to fully express the sadness. To avoid disconnect in the line, careful attention to fingering is important. This piece should be played very expressively.
