The key of E minor, combined with a fast 4/4 meter, creates an energetic, dance-like piece. A variety of articulations are used, making this solo an excellent study in legato, staccato and accents. Written in A-B-A form, syncopation is used in the melody of the B section. The return of the A section brings the left hand down one octave and uses an E natural minor scale in the coda.
