There is a western, folk flavor to this legato, rolling, panoramic solo, in B major. The left hand keeps a fairly constant broken chord accompaniment, and the right hand sings the melody, with occasional reaches of an octave. There are many changes in tempo, meter and dynamics, and there is a generous use of the extremes of the keyboard. This solo won a Lynn Freeman Olson Composition Award.

    This is an interesting song. I like the chords in it, sounds like it could be from a movie soundtrack. This piece could become boring for an advanced student, but it helped me learn a lot about pedaling, phrasing, and stylistic expression. The notation is fairly easy to read.
