The first movement starts with a beautiful melody line, which soon moves into a driving and jazzy rhythm. A challenging cadenza based on double stops closes the first movement. The second movement has a Stravinskian mode, with sudden changes of moods and moments of folkloristic references of the composer Italian home town of Jesi.
