The first and third movements of Henry Cowell's Homage to Iran are both marked Tempo rubato and they share the character of an intense improvisatory chant for the violin, over a hypnotic ostinato from the drum. Piano and violin are equal partners in the second movement, Interlude, which is a brilliant running toccata, Presto, in 2/4. The last movement, Con spirito, begins as a set of dance variations in which 7/8 alternates with 9/8. The drum is heard only briefly, during a slower middle episode, 12/8- 13/8. The piece ends with a return of the dance variations with which the fourth movement began, and a spirited coda.
