Keleusma has a bucolic character and is inspired by the ancient greek music tradition. Bucolic pieces in Ancient Greece where devoted to Dionysos, the god of wine.

This concertino begins with a dialogue between flute and strings based on repeated motifs of 3rd minor and 4th augmented intervallic relations. These relations form the modal material of the piece basically routed by the ancient chromatic tetrachord. Strings gradually obtain a percussive character -by the use of contemporary techniques- which define the mood and unify the differentially orientated musical elements.
