The right hand takes the accompaniment here, while the left hand plays the melody in octaves. Pedal with the right-hand, not with the left, as would be the usual practise. Minimalist music is often associated with a performance practise that is either separate from the human qualities that make traditional music attractive, or else is presumed as intended to be performed in a mechanistic or rigid fashion. Listen to any of Phillip Glass' solo piano recordings, and you will find them overtly Romantic in mood and musical practise. I play these pieces with those same Old School, traditional musical values of interpretation. It makes for an satisfying musical experience for both performer and listeners alike. This arrangement is suitable for vocal accompaniment. Key of D. MBB.
