Exercises to go with

Snow, Moon and Flowers: Sculthorpe

The relaxed wrist is essential to produce the effect of snow falling.

The stroke of the keys aids the mimicry of moonlight on the snow.

The sonority of the bass notes and pedal gives pictures of Eastern gongs.

Senza rall. when performed with skill amplifies the sound of the moments stillness when the moon hides.

The E3 flat prepares for the use of the Prygian mode in the ascending and requires careful pedalling.

The prominence of the E3 flat, A3 flat and B3 flat in bar 10 & 11 and 13 & 14 need bringing forward above the right hand accompaniment.
