This lyrical, neo-romantic work by Jean-Michel Damase is pleasant for both the performer and the audience.  The piece is not technically or rhythmically demanding, nor is it taxing to the player’s endurance.  This makes the work extremely desirable for younger players, and more advanced performers looking for some respite in a recital program.  The bass clef notation is limited to the last four measures and to one isolated pitch.  There is one measure of 2/4 meter in the piece, which is otherwise in 4/4.
