Although this is a short work, I have aimed to evoke 3 distinct genres; the German Landler of the main melody depicts the relaxed after-hours mood of the workmen; the mechanical chatter of the strings reflects the tempo of the brutal labour; and the mysteries of the dark and spirit-haunted forests of Karl's faraway homeland. The references to Mendelssohn and Wagner are not accidental and perhaps mirror the impudence, irreverence - chutzpah - of the composer!
