This piece is very rhythmical with mostly 16th notes and accents. Kind of described as a drum duet on keyboards. The top player will need 4 mallets, but mostly to sustain notes. Based on two short, energetic rhythmic fragments, it is shaped by continuous changes as they pass back and forth between the two instruments.
