As the title suggests this musical composition presents several and distinguished pathways along its course. The contrast between parts of extreme serenity, lightness, lyricism and others with festive, grandiose and great bravery atmosphere are one of the most evident characteristics along the musical speech of this work.

The rhythmical rigour is one of the premises for its performance, given the style of writing, very focused in the minutious synchronism of the execution between the different instruments. On the other hand, there are several solistic moments, from lyrical to virtuous character, played by all the interpreters.

Even though it is a work written for chamber music, this piece recreates many times moments of greatness, presenting an almost orchestral sound mass.
