The frenzy of a busy train station is depicted through this piece written entirely with intervals of fifths and thirds. In the A section, students are sure to enjoy the catchy rhythmic ostinato that uses blocked intervals. The B section features broken fifths with hand crossings that cover a wide range of the keyboard. The use of the damper pedal helps to create a long, lyrical line. The return of the A section brings this energetic solo to an exciting close.
