The Letter is an adventurous piano solo in Bb minor with a time signature of 12/8. Make big changes in dynamics, and use the pedal carefully, especially whenever there are scale passages. Bring out the right hand melody by shifting the weight of the hand slightly towards the right. Allow the left hand to pivot on the second finger in order to reach the intervals of a tenth. This is one of my favorite compositions, and one that is very dear to me. It can be handled by advanced intermediate pianists, and is a great piece for recitals.
