|DW942 - An Early Sunrise:
Standard: Grade 2
Approximate playing time: 1 min
Written in 4/4 time in the key of C Major, this descriptive piece starts off quietly with a four bar introduction mostly of treble notes. The next eight bars introduce bass chords, but no fundamental bass notes until the end of the section (the sun rising). The third section introduces full basses and chords, while the treble carries on the uncomplicated melody. The ending shows the sun settling down in a happy position, quietly carrying out its business, with a descending treble. Ah!
