The tempo changes from the initial slow walking pace at the start of the presentation to a more lively and quick pace before receding back to a normal walking pace and continues to toggle between the two paces. The melody of the recital can be described by a short but fast shifting motive. The composer uses about four notes that the shift rapidly from one set to another. At the introduction and throughout the piece the energy and vigor depicted in the melody gives the recital a jovial or celebratory atmosphere and mood.

The vigor and strength that is depicted in the piece can be likened to the mood of a carnival or an active musical dance. The harmony of the recital is also varied between an interval and a chord. In the introduction of the piece, the general harmony is an interval sounding at most two notes at a time. In the later stages of the piece, it shifts to a chord but turns back the harmony back to the interval. At the intervals, there is an underlying melody that supports the harmony.

In the subsequent groups of chords, the melody is not very clear, and the progression is achieved in the recital. The variation between the interval and chords in the piece creates musical motion in the presentation. Musically it is expected that where the interval is supported by an underlying melody and the audience perceives a level of stability, the harmony is referred to as consonance. However, in the case of a turbulent and unstable set of chords, the harmony is referred to as a dissonance. The texture of this presentation can be described as both thick and thin.

First, the texture can be described as monophonic. The description of the texture is because the presentation is a solo recital that is not accompanied by any vocals. A good example of thin texture is that which contains only one part like a solo voice that is not accompanied by anything. However, some composers might have the opinion that this piece does not have a thin texture. The argument would support the counterpoint composition. In this style of composition, the composer uses the underlying harmony which is overrun by the tone of the piece.

This is a texture referred to as Melody and accompaniment. In this case the piece would be described as polyphonic in nature. The performer was able to link greatly with both the audience and the performance. The body movements indicated this during the performance. The performer gave a good and direct introduction to the audience and right from the start the audience would know what to expect.
