This work by Reinecke is a beautiful nocturne.  It is written in ternary form with a short codetta.  It is lyrical, romantic, and beautiful.  It requires good breath support and phrasing, but does not make many technical demands; therefore, it is a good piece for younger players.  It is also a good alternative to the Franz Strauss Nocturno, because it is in the same style but is not programmed as often.
