The piece tells a story: an old fellow, the 'grumbler', goes to his favorite bar one evening for a quiet glass or two of schnapps. He slips into a mood of reveries and reminicences, as represented by the slower lyrical passages. But to the next table come a few blades of the younger generation, who not only interrupt the peaceful ambience but actually make fun of the old fellow and his ways. a dialogue ensues: fast music alternates with slower. But the 'grumbler' shows more spirit than we might imagine. Suffice to say…he has the last word.  Features bassoon solo.
