We came across this gorgeous piece when watching Arcadi Volodos perform it as an encore. Playing tips: A steady pace is of the essence here, so count the tempo silently to yourself at first, and then stick to it. Even if slow, the piece should move along calmly; make sure it doesn’t ‘drag’. The RH dotted quaver/semiquaver motif needs to be precise: always bring out the top notes and take special care that the semiquavers don’t stick out.
