A woodwind quartet with optional parts is presented in a joyful manner giving a sense of expectation. After a pert introduction, the melody is stated with a solo clarinet with answering figures rotated amongst the other voices. A joyful bridge section gravitates towards a modulation with the tune stated in the lower voices. The piece goes into a free, flourishing motion where it heads into yet another modulation. The tune now is doubled in the flute and clarinet with accompaniment figures moving in hemiola sets. After a set of imitation figures passed about the ensemble the piece goes into a coda section with more joyful figures.
