Sextet began as a solo piano cue written for a short film. As is often the case, the scene was cut and music discarded. Eventually, that snippet of melody would evolve into the Vivace portion of the piece. Although the work contains several contrasting sections, it is performed without pause as one continuous movement and displays, due to its origins, a certain cinematic sensibility.
