    If you have a good technique and a fondness for the music of Percy Grainger then this is a piece from 1954 is for you. It has all of the qualities found in the lighter side of Grainger's music - an instantly recognisable melody with a middle section that has...

    some interesting harmonies. A number of passages need careful fingering, perhaps with right or left hand taking over occasional notes from the other hand to facilitate performance. Some of the spread chords, especially in the final few bars do need careful practise. Like all good pieces of this genre it does outstay its welcome. Another piece of Grainger's in the same mould which people may enjoy is 'Walking Tune', published by Schott and Co.
