Thismajestic, expansive piece in 4/4 meter is a gold mine for teaching armweight while moving around the keyboard. Written in A-B-A form, thelyrical right-hand melody is accompanied by blocked fifths and rootposition chords in the left hand that move up by octaves. Theaccompaniment in the B section changes to broken chords, creating atender contrast. In the return of A, the left hand chords are doubled inthe right hand adding to the sound and sweep of the solo. While itbegins in D major, the final two measures of the piece end in E major.
