B3

 

A lyrical piece from Tchaikovsky's collection op.39.
It may be helpful to think of this piece being made up of three parts. A principal upper melody in the RH, a secondary melody in the bass and chordal accompaniment in the centre ground: and this shared between two hands.
As the title suggests it needs to evoke the atmosphere of a relaxed snooze. Soft dynamics and smooth legato lines.
