This exciting piece begins and is over in a flash! An energetic accompaniment pattern provides a speedily flowing base for the right hand. Keeping a brisk tempo can be difficult for the left hand partly because of the fingering necessary throughout. The right hand however is free to glide along without much hindrance. C major scales become twisty, resulting in fun descending passages. Few dynamic markings are given, but the more advanced performers can have more dynamic fluctuations within phrases.
