Traditional string quartet with opt. violin part for viola. The piece is rendered as a march with the tune clearly stated in the first violin and then becomes more chordal in the upper three parts. A transition is now presented in an imitation of parts with dynamic changes for interest and further then the cello takes over with the tune while the upper parts give harmonic support. The piece progresses to be more block in harmonic and rhythmical structure only to be turned over to imitation in the melodic material. The coda section is much like the introduction material and builds in dynamic force, only to be concluded with a pizzicato final note.
