Origianlly written for Mechem’s opera Tartuffe, “The Lighthearted Lovers” is more difficult than it looks. Compound meter and changing meters along with fermatas that can be interpreted several different ways abound in this piece. Exciting and fast-paced, this piece requires an excellent accompanist.
