Composed by Catherine Rollin. Piano Solo; Solo. Intermediate level piece for the Piano Solo event with the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Festivals Bulletin 2008-2009-2010. Sheet. Published by Alfred Music (AP.22480).

Item Number: AP.22480

This solo, commissioned by the Topeka and Northeast Kansas Music Teachers Association, is aptly named. The A section begins with a delicate melody in G major, creating the image of a brightly shining field of sunflowers. The B section depicts the wind gently blowing through the wheat fields. The left hand in this section is expansive and covers a wide range. The melody is an excellent study of harmonic intervals, especially thirds. The ! time signature adds to the lilting quality of the piece. The complete picture of the music paints a beautiful and lyrical tribute to the state of Kansas. Intermediate.

    Great song with repetition and majesty. A little too easy.

    I enjoy playing music which you don't hear on the radio or CD. This piece was within my ability range and I was very pleased with my purchase. This piece was fairly easy for me and the music is just sweet. I suggest this piece to people who are...

    looking for a sweet melody to play on those wonderful sunny days.
