This brilliant solo has great wit and flair. It is also an excellent technical study, offering ample opportunity to develop finger agility with its mostly staccato passages of parallel chords in root position and first inversion, double thirds, and broken chord accompaniments. Concise rhythms and crisp articulation characterize this work, expertly crafted to bring out the best in any student. In ABA form, the middle section's style is droll and fanciful, while the outer parts are characterized by a happy, dancing mood. Great festival or competition choice for the advancing student. Hal Leonard Student Piano Library Level 5 (Intermediate); 4/4; allegro animato; parallel chords, double notes; excellent character and mood; staccato throughout; presents some technical challenges, but well worth the effort; C Major; 3 pages.
