A lovely piece which recalls the motion of tree branches swaying in a summer breeze. Begin with a very relaxed left hand, which drops onto the keys and lifts in one fluid movement as the melodic notes are taken over by the right hand. Emphasize this passing back and forth of the two and three note motifs between the hands to produce a sort of acoustic “ballet”.
The mood is relaxed and “Sherwood’s Forest” offers a great opportunity to practice the rhythmic ebb and flow of “rubato” playing.
