Exploring the romantic style will be easy with this E minor solo in 3/4 meter. In A-B form, the left hand employs a simple broken-chord style accompaniment in the A section with the melody in the right hand. The B section features a left-hand melody with right-hand broken one-octave arpeggios. Balance between the hands and shaping the melody are two skills that can be honed in this lyrical solo. A Federation Festivals 2014-2016 selection.
