Monday Musical Offering

More monomanual leftist music from Saint-Saens:

This piece has some little bits that are just difficult for fingers to do--play legato with your fourth and fifth fingers while playing staccato with the first and second, and so on. It's definitely a good etude. It's also pretty amusing music--I like the bit just before the ending where he crawls up the keyboard in a desperate search for a home key, and then just gives up and starts the finale.
