|DW914 - Rhapsidium for a Rainy Day:
Playing Standard: Grade 7
Playing Time (approximate): 3 min
This warm classical composition is written in E major. It requires finger dexterity and fine instrument control in order to perform across its rhythmic range with precision and expression. The phrasing and note accenting, four-note treble chords and bolero-like melody are balanced by some double-note bass work to support the rhythmic flow, together with several changes of register. As the indications state, nobile con moto and attacca con subito con fuoco are at its very essence.
