One of the characteristics of Impressionism is that the further you are the “clearer” the art form gets. This composition is a beautiful instance of the style. The asymmetry of the tune and the orchestral bits keep us at a distance — and we are not able to “put together he whole” at once. But after a few listens, the distance vanishes, everything coheres. If you look closely, there’s also a 1950s-Broadway feel to the arrangements.
