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.

Two performances of this jazz-inspired piano piece. A study in 'classic' jazz vocabulary and voicings. To help the swing along, I've added backing tracks and Patrons can access these on the Patron page. Have fun!
