The three movements of the concerto are each influenced in some way by musical aspects of central, eastern and western Europe. It is from these three geographical areas that the concerto derives its formal structure and its melodic and rhythmic elements. The first movement draws on European classical tradition from which it adopts the typical sonata form with its two characteristic contrasting themes. The second movement uses modal scales, which evoke the folk music traditions of eastern European countries, and the third movement looks westwards towards Spain, adopting certain rhythmic and harmonic features of flamenco music.
