I chose “Allegro Burlesco” by Friedrich Kuhlau because it sounds energetic and humorous. While playing this piece I learned lots of new words like jocular and sforzando. It was really fun in the beginning because you’re learning how it sounds as you play it. I thought it sounded really good. Some challenges I faced were making sure that the notes sounded right and making the dynamics right. The reason I chose this picture is because Allegro Burlesco is a playful and jocular piece. And the monkeys shown in the picture are playful and funny.
