The first and third movements of this piece are inspired by Bulgarian folk tunes and rhythmic groupings. The flighty contrapuntal passages of the fast movements are inspired by the kaval--a breathy folk flute from the Balkans and surrounding regions. The middle movement is a recitative based on a lullaby by the great Armenian composer Gomidas Vardapet.
