Movement 1 (Introduzione) is a free Fuga à 4 over two contrasting subjects, which are presented in a short introduction. The second movement (Andante comodo) is a free passacaglia in AABA form with the A sections in a light A major and the medium B part in the minor parallell f sharp minor. The B section is strongly influenced by Arvo Pärt. The third movement (Finale minimalistico) is written in the strictly minimalistic style which Steve Reich used in his earlier works.
