Scored for the traditional string quartet (two violins, viola, and cello), this work presents a single large movement utilizing several themes of different character: romantic, innocent, driven, playful, and hauntingly mystical. Several of the energetic, dancelike themes are presented in mirror image by two of the instruments moving in opposite directions.
