A night out in the city was the inspiration behind the work, which begins with hard-edged excitement. The piece then quietens through a calm, thoughtful middle section gradually slowing into a hushed ending. The chorale-like ending was the inspiration and composed first, with the rest of the material emanating from the final section.
