    Like many of MacDowell's pieces, the "Hexentanz" demands extremely light and fast piano technique. Helter-skelter, fleeting, flying all over the keyboard...this is beautiful and not overly long piece, but you need very small and nimble fingers to be able to play it. Fans of Brahms, Liszt, Rachmaninoff...

    , etc. may have an especially hard time with it. In any case, though, it's well worth the effort.
