For most of its length Elegy has a simple song-like melody, with some cadenza-like moments. The solo line is accompanied by an ostinato bass line in the piano, which persists in pulling the music back into the original key, despite many, sometimes quite forceful attempts, by the solo line to break out of this repetition. The mood of the piece suggests perhaps a wistful nostalgia over something lost, rather than a tragedy, and ends with a feeling of something unresolved and lingering.
