This is one of the oldest songs in my memory, learned around late elementary. It was also the one that my last piano teacher in high school had selected as THE example to use to start torturing my playing into shape. We must have torn the piece apart over a period of three months before I finally understood what true “legato” meant.
It also has the minor distinction of being the first and only piece to which I have composed an entire, original fantasy scene for, and the images always flash through my head whenever I play. I don’t know if the “story” has helped its expression, but maybe one of these days, I’ll find a moment to write it out.
