The opening section consists of a single note bass line and an arpeggiated melody. The left hand is very simple, but the right hand has a lot of movement. Reset the sustain pedal about every two measures to fill out the sound. We get new material at measure 19. The left hand changes to a quarter and eighth rhythm to help give the song some momentum. The right hand has a new melody along with some chords for emphasis. The rest of the song is similar. Everything is moved up an octave in measure 33. Measure 65 to the end is the strongest section with the left hand in octaves on the downbeat of each measure.
