The work's single movement presents a dramatic scenario which culminates in a central Misterioso and gradually returns to it first, robust idea. It is in a sectional arch form in which the tempos of each section accelerate to the midpoint and then effect a ritardando, returning at the end to the opening material at its original tempo. The characters of the sections vary from fanfares to boatsongs to passages of imitative counterpoint. The instruments trade solo and accompanimental duties in a design of varying combinations. The piece is nine minutes long.
The score was revised in 2009, and then again slightly in 2011.
The "premiere presentation" of this work was given on May 10, 2009, at Old First Concerts, in San Francisco, as an audio broadcast of the computer soundfile.
