The first movement presents antiphony between the flute and the oboe on the one hand and the bassoon part on the other. While the flute and the oboe articulate fifths in parallel motion, the bassoon plays melodies redolent of ethnic Jewish music.
In the second movement, the flute and the oboe open with parallel fourths. This provides a harmonic background for two solos courtesy of the bassoon. The oboe part then assumes the primary melodic voice with two solos while the flute and the bassoon play in parallel fifths.
In the third movement, the primary melodic role is assigned to the flute. Short motivic fragments set to a fast tempo characterize this part, with the oboe and the bassoon providing harmonic support and complementary motives. A cadenza for unaccompanied flute is followed by a restatement of the opening thematic material.
Instrumentation: Flute, oboe, bassoon.
Duration: 6 min.
