Misc. Comments

  • The theme is a nice mix of major and minor. It seemes virtuosic but isn't to difficult.
  • The song it's based on is very particular. Here is the first part:
Un petit blanc, que j’aime,
En ces lieux est venu;
Oui oui c’ était lui-même,
C’ etait lui, je l’ai vu.
A la pauvre Négresse
Il porte le bonheur;
Elle voudrait sans cesse
Le presser sur son coeur.
Petit blanc! mon bon frère!
Ah! Ah! petit blanc si doux,
Il n’ est rien sur la terre,
D’ aussi joli que vous.
