The opening is a slow introduction recalling the wide span of the River Exe at Bickleigh. On the opposite west bank there is a green meadow and upon this imagine a fiddler and country dance in progress: the attention wanders and the fiddler fades as nature reveals a more gentle approach in the brief Allegretto where the violin dreams before the attention returns to the fiddler at the dance. The slow movement is the wide river itself, leisurely in summer. The third and final movement contains elements suggested by its predecessors with alternative moods of graceful nature and dark clouds providing contrast and the work ends slowly as it began with the introduction transformed into the concerto’s epilogue. The river flows on.
