Sleepsong The Toy
About the work
The first movement is an Andante Cantabile, though it becomes more agitated for a time. The second movement is marked Allegretto Vivace, but slows down as it progresses.
The first movement is fairly slow moving, with chordal piano accompaniment to melodic phrases from the double bass. The second movement is lively, with staccato chords on the piano accompanying accented expressive sections on the double bass.
