Picnic by the River by Catherine Wilson is a level 2 piano solo that is peaceful, lilting and atmospheric.  


The lyrical right hand explores the intervals of 5ths and 6ths, that perhaps convey the image of reaching out for items to consume, accompanied by an ostinato style left hand to mimic movement of the water.

Time signature: 3/4
