The first section is an opening flourish or fanfare in choppy eight bar phrases with no instrument being more prominent than the others. There follows a slower, more thoughtful passage with the instruments moving together in the main, before returning to the original tempo. The third part is much more spiky and altogether more chaotic with a staccato, canonic figure being conspicuous before calming down into a lyrical, descending passage exploring some harmonic modulations. It ends with a reprise of the third theme before coming to a loud climax. The piece lasts for about three and a half minutes.
