This is a romantic work in a single movement, where tonal harmonies and lush orchestral textures thrive in an atmosphere of far-off places. Repetition occurs in the form of short motives, primarily rhythmic. In the concerto tradition, there is a notated cadenza for the soloist before the final section.
