A sense of mystery pervades in this piece that is at once playful and serious, innocent and mischievous. The whole work is almost completely derived from the opening bars of the main theme. Sudden and frequent shifts of mood, mode and tonality are heard throughout this magical composition.
Performance by USC Thornton Wind Ensemble, reading session conducted by the composer
