An ambitious, but supremely joyous piece of music written for brass quintet. We hear a theme passed along to each musician--heard continuously through the entire work as it is transposed into every scale available in the key of E-major (that's why it's spelled with an E!). The surrounding rhythms and harmonies react to each transposition--and they are reluctant to yield to the evolving character of the theme in each disguise--until they violently shatter the theme. The theme endures, but returns from an unexpected direction to take hold to the finish.
