In the fifth study there is an impetuous fast paced rhythm that is elucidated by the dexterity of the composer by repeatedly mixing the 16th note. This creates a fast paced rhythm and subsequently the tempo of the music also rises owing to this fact. It has strong melodic sense and also a jubilant rhythm that has been efficiently showcased in this works by Leighton. The audience is able to transcend to the narrative reality intended by the composer.
This rendition is similar to the secondary study composition. Throughout the works of five studies there is an intense tension between the elements that has been observed and felt. This is seen in the deliberate pacing crescendo from the initial phase of the composition until the climax. This is subsequently joining by a melody chord progression that is clearly seen in the musical renditions. This makes the audience feel the excitement and tension between the fast paced and the melancholic composition. Currently in the markets the commercial availability of the songs are only through two works. There are only two CD recording for this work. One has been played by Margaret Fingerhut. The second work was performed by Angela Brownridge. Much of the output is published by the Novell Company.
To summarize the work of Leighton and the five studies, it has been found that the composer has integrated the twelve tone diatonic style of music and created a newer rendition. There is an eclectic mix of the fast paced and medium paced melancholic tempo that is seen in the final composition. There is also intense importance given to the conventional classic composition of the music. This makes the theme of the music essentially interesting. To conclude about Leighton works they are innovative renditions of the conventional music that has been essayed.
