Sunstreams & Sunday Morning
Two pieces of moderate tempo and difficulty. Sunstreams is of approximately grade 6/7 standard with accessible appeal. Its range is D 1st octave to A third octave. The showy more technical middle section lies under the fingers so is one of those ‘easier than it looks’ passages. No extended techniques are used. ‘Sunday Morning’ is a little more difficult at approximately grade7; grade 8 if the optional 8va is taken since it ventures to 4th octave Db. Timbral trills are employed for which fingerings are shown.
