Moyse: 24 Petites Études Mélodiques – No. 13

With etude number 13, I’m past the halfway point for this book!

I really loved playing this one. It’s a lovely melody and this one is great for experimenting with different tone colors. I tried to do something different with each variation, which I hope came through a bit in the recording. The high F sharps (always treacherous!) could have been smoother and clearer, so I’ll have to keep revisiting this with that goal in mind.

Extra special bonus: the beginning of the last variation sounds a little like Simple Gifts!

See you tomorrow for another Sunday installment of Etude of the Week!
