Wonderful piece which will sound much more difficult than it really is. The inserted 4/4 measures among the 3/4 measures give this number a refreshing flavor. I would describe this as a very delicate piece which can demonstrate a mature, musical ability of your group. Each player has the melody from time to time and the ensemble will need to listen to each other throughout for a balanced performance.
