For full orchestra the piece begins with a straight forward introduction and then settles into a solemn mood. The theme is first presented in the horns and then joined with the upper woodwinds. A transition is carried by the brass and then modulates upward where the woodwinds and strings burst forth with a decorated version of the melody supported by the full orchestra. The chordal structure and rhythms become stronger until it concludes on a strong resolute chord.
