I like to think that Britten was both pushing forward in terms of technical challenges and musical idiom but also looking back, using the natural harmonics of an instrument very much connected to nature, a theme that is central to the Serenade.

It is very idiomatic, despite its challenging aspects of endurance and sheer technical capability.
