The composer moulds them into a different reality, lending them new harmony, adding atonal counterpoints, turning them into neo-baroque forms.

The Corale's second appearance produces a solemn finale for the monumental construction, the material for which is borrowed from a nineteenth-century collection compiled by the Polish ethnologist Oskar Kolberg.
The concerto finishes with a dramatic flourish and climax from the whole orchestra.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Capriccio notturno ed Arioso: Vivace — the Capriccio is an airy, virtuoso scherzo , the main subject of which is intoned by the violin, followed by the remainder of the strings and woodwinds.
It is followed by an expressive Arioso initiated by the brass section.
The reprisal of the capriccio is intoned by the cellos and harp, the theme bowed, then with pizzicato. It is concluded with the ominous rumblings of the drums, double-basses and bass clarinet.
