Perhaps to portray the depth of Lake Geneva, most of this piece takes place in the low register of the keyboard. Students will need to be comfortable with playing the right hand in bass clef. The accompaniment subsists mostly of broken fifths and sixths, though they can be challenging because they move around frequently. The melody should be smooth and legato. It needs to speak clearly above the accompaniment, which is especially important because of their closeness in hand positions.
