This through-composed work utilizes several contrasting ideas based upon "gypsy" scales. There also is an underlying dancelike, seductive atmosphere created through harmony and rhythm. There are moments of delicate poetry, but also moments of exuberance much like those in Gershwin’s orchestral works.
