The bulk of this conversational work arranges ideas from Mendelssohn's Allegro Non Troppo in C minor (Book 3, No. 2, Op. 38), culminating in an arranged excerpt to 'bring it home'. It represents an attempt to compose a new klezmer work making use of some of Mendelssohn's melodic ideas (amongst others). Be prepared to teeter out of control.
