Misc. Comments

Vocalise is a study in several respects. It is a compositional study on an extended melodic line, in which a large-scale form is created using purely melodic ideas without recourse to harmony. Two or more notes are never played simultaneously. It is also a rhythmic study in which the performer must decipher numerous rhythmic complexities to achieve the effect of a fluid and quasi-improvisational melodic sweep. Finally, in the tradition of one-handed piano pieces, it is a study that tests the pianist’s endurance and ability to command the entire piano with one hand.
