This piece has a somewhat unusual time signature of 9/8. It has a quick tempo of Allegro. The music is in the key of G major and the total duration is 2 minutes. This music was written as a self-accompanied work, as such the underlying harmonic structure is built into the melody. Some other distinctive features include an abundance of chromatic notes, changes in tempo such as rubato and accelerando, and dramatic fermata.

The violin is a string instrument, with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. Of the four instruments in the violin family; the violin, viola, cello and doublebass; the violin is the smallest and the highest pitched member. This instrument is also known as the fiddle.
Violins are played by drawing a bow across one or more of its strings, while different pitches are produced by the string(s) being stopped by the other hand. Other techniques such as plucking are also employed.

The name "violin" is derived from the Medieval Latin word "vitula", meaning stringed instrument - it is believed that this is also the origin of the Germanic word "fiddle". Most of the modern characterists of the violin were developed in 16th-century Italy, but the instrument has its earliest origins in Asia where Turkic and Mongolian horsemen played instruments with bows and strings made of horsehair. Someone who plays the violin is known as a violinist or a fiddler. Today violinists can be found in a wide variety of musical genres including classical, jazz, folk music and rock 'n roll.
