Burgmüller: Tendre Fleur from 25 Progressive Studies, Op. 100, No. 10 (Intermediate)

In Tendre Fleur, varied phrase lengths and detailed articulation make more demands on a student’s interpretive skills. A gentle, loping phrase made up of short, two- and four-note slurs is answered by a much longer phrase, spun out over four measures, made more expressive by a LH countermelody. This is the first study in Opus 100 that asks students to play two complementary melodies simultaneously, in a lyrical duet.
