This is an odd little piece. They say Prokofiev kept a notebook with “tidbits” of ideas and when he came to compose a piece (like the Third Piano Concerto), he would consult this notebook when he got stuck. He then would find a “tidbit” that would be pliable enough to help finish the music.
I have a similar notebook of ideas that goes back for well over twenty years or more. When I was putting “Fandango” together, I did need a segue idea and I found one in that notebook that only needed a little shaping like transposition.
