This is a lively and colourful piece for youth orchestra, based on a quasi-Hungarian folk tune. After a slow introduction, a rhythmic melody springs to life, leading to a rumbustious second theme. This work is scored for a full orchestra, and is designed for good high school players and tertiary students.
