Almost entirely built on natural and synthetic pentatonic scales, this piece is quite endearing. It is comprised of four movements. The first being a sonata built on the natural 'major' pentatonic scale. It's best to take this piece slow and easy. Fill it with rubato and allow the music to play itself rather than forcing each downbeat. The second movement is a simple song written in the 'minor' pentatonic scale. It is important to recognize the two different emotions (anger and sadness) in the piece, as the piece juggles between the two. The third is a fast and fun rondo built using a synthetic scale. For the rondo all that needs to be known is fast and loud. Dynamic shifts are made through the addition and removal of instruments but if you feel the need to play with them yourself feel free. The fourth movement is a theme and variations built on another synthetic scale. Observe the fermatas as you wish their main purpose is to separate the main sections of the variations.
