    When played correctly, this piece sounds very bright and happy. Learning it and performing it, though, is not the easiest, particularly with the range of styles of music in this medley. The tempo markings are sometimes a bit faster than their original parts, but it sounds good either way, provided...

    that they are played accurately. It is extremely easy to make a mistake when playing this.
