The title refers to the great Brazilian river, and the images and actions that a journey on such a river might provide. This work has a seamless, flowing action within which, along the way, one might sense changes of pace through the speed of the notes, sometimes resulting in a "cascade" of many notes, other times in a slowing down that almost stops the action entirely. A rippling effect can be heard in the trill sections.
