HEART'S AFIRE - Early Advanced
Heart's Afire is the perfect introduction to the nocturne. It is a melancholy and at times brooding piece that invokes the image of a dark night. It features the classic characteristics of a nocturne, making it a great teaching piece, as it is written in ABA form, uses an arpeggio left hand accompaniment with a lyrical, floating right hand melody, and the chromaticism typically employed in a nocturne.
