Pastorale, Op. 100, no. 3 by Friedrich Burgmüller
I found the tempo marking of 66 bpm in my Alfred edition to be painfully slow – I’m playing the piece at 92 bpm. This is a great study in bringing out a melody against a subdued accompaniment. The left hand chords are soft, but must be evenly balanced. Make sure that all of the notes in each chord are sounding. In measures 5 and 21 begin the grace note on the beat; the A in the right hand should be played simultaneously with the left hand chord. Likewise for the grace note B’s in measures 26 and 27.
