The Composition:
      Scarborough Fair is an old English folk tune presented in this piece as a theme and four settings. The first setting suggests the popular arrangement by Simon & Garfunkel in the 1960s. Then comes a chromatic harmonization topped by triplets in the flute, followed by the sounds of a bustling country fair with its strong rhythmic accompaninment. Variation IV evokes a well-known Bach chorale.
