Work Overview

This piece includes the extension chords, 9ths, 11ths, and 13ths, with alterations to create rich harmonic effects. The form of the piece is ABACA . The opening chordal section is in 4/4 and is contrasted by the B section in 6/8 time, which uses arpeggiated left hand chords. The C section makes use of a sequence, the melody of which is voiced first in the soprano part, and next in the inner voice (alto) . This section continues with an eight bar section in straight timing. The final A section uses an embellished melody over the original chord structure, and builds to a climax, finishing with a final D major 13, sharp 11 chord, arpeggiated in fourths.
