Year of composition
The work follows a free Rondo form. The main theme, which reappears 3 times, is of light and whimsical character, while the second is very lyric and expressive. Although still written in C# minor, it modulates frequently and is very chromatic with much diversity of fluctuating tonalities during the course of the work.
The flute part has a medium-high level of difficulty with moments of virtuosity and brilliance. The central cadence part has been added to give variety and contrast and a slightly longer duration of up to 5 minutes.
