Great Piece.

Comments:

This piece is very complex and is not an easy task to learn. But that makes it all the more rewarding when you get it down. There are quite a few repetitive parts that you should learn relatively quickly, but it is the speed that will take time. As well as the middle section that is very rubato and freely moving. It is tricky to learn. It is definitely an advanced piece but one you will enjoy learning. I am playing it on my junior recital and I will have worked on it for several months before it is performed.
