A technical showpiece in a quasi-variation form that requires virtuosic skills in terms of double/ triple tonguing and finger dexterity (occasionally in quite disjunct passages). Rhythmic challenges are rather straight-forward although variation three and the finale (in 12/16) will require a good understanding of subdivision. Range up to high C during impact points. Slower variations provide contrast and a chance to showcase lyrical playing through long phrases. Finale is FAST and exciting. Piano part is challenging.
