The instruments in this piece work together to create a pleasing sound. The work begins with an accompaniment with the string orchestra, which supports the celesta melody to create substance in the piece.

As the audience, we hear the melody line stand out, as it is played with expression and varied dynamics, with the use of chromatic notes too.
