Piece: François Morel -- Étude de Sonorité No. 2
Why did you choose this piece?
I chose Morel's Étude de Sonorité No. 2 because I enjoy the dissonance between the main theme and the impressionistic development. The deliberate staccato-like notes pair exceptionally well with the mellow phrases distributed throughout the piece.
