The romance and passion of a rhapsody are found in this expressive solo. Two keys, D minor and D major, are used in contrasting sections. D minor represents the passionate side while the D major section is more lyrical and romantic in nature. Technical facility is needed for the 16th-note passages found in both sections. Wide use of the keyboard makes this a virtuosic-sounding piece.
