The beginning moderato has a bold melodic statement played by the trumpets. The melody is accompanied by a counter melody in the upper woodwinds. The low brass and low woodwinds use syncopated, chordal figures to support the melody. The andante section in Eb introduces a mysterious melody using altered background chords that include accidentals for every section. The piece moves to a moderato section that uses a pedal point motif. The piece then builds to the new key of F. The main theme section continues to build before the final, heroic ending.
