Incantation is a fast and exciting piano solo in the key of E minor. The piece is not as difficult as it sounds, but at 5 minutes long, it does require stamina to get through it. Some discomfort in the left forearm is normal, and will subside the more you play the piece. You don’t have to play it as fast as the recording, but just make sure that the timing is crisp, and I suggest you use a metronome. Curve the fingers a lot, and allow the wrists to remain loose and supple. It is very important that the left hand alternates between thumb and second finger on the repeated note E, as it cannot be done with the thumb alone. A good showpiece for a recital!
