This is a wonderful piece for concluding the first volume of preludes by Robert Vandall. Upbeat, rhythmic, and impressive, this bagatelle is sure to please performers and audience members alike. Careful counting and strict rhythms are essential for conveying the electric character. Students need to be comfortable with changing hand positions frequently and without pause. The dynamics add a dramatic quality and should be followed closely.
