- Winter Rhapsody
The maestoso opening of this solo in 3/4 meter leads to an allegro molto tempo. From there, the piece takes off on a wild chase using triplet arpeggios, chromatic scales and ostinato patterns until it returns to the maestoso section in the final four measures. Don't be fooled by the C major key signature-there are many accidentals and chromatic passages, yet they fall comfortably within the hand. This is definitely a show-stopper and is destined to be a favorite on recitals and contest lists.
