Quick Overview

The final movement is another fast and furious dialogue between the soloist and the ensemble with real virtuoso sections for both. It is akin to a classical rondo with the recurring section being a duet between the guitar and the percussion section, the guitar sometimes becoming a percussion instrument by knocking on the body of the instrument. Again, the main idea is the ever-relentless driving energy, which should make for a most exciting experience so as to make both performers and audience feel a bit exhausted.
