This is a REALLY LONG song, based off of Vivaldi's Piccolo Concerto. First here's the instrumentation:

-Solo Piano
-2 Violins
-1 Viola
-1 Cello
-1 Contrabass
-Solo Harp

So anyway, there are three separate, distinct movements to this song:

I. Childhood
II. Adulthood
III. Elderhood

The first movement, Childhood, is whimsical and happy, with plenty of ups and downs. The mood isn't all happy, of course, but a child's life is never perfect.

The second movement, Adulthood, is almost completely filled with sadness. It's monotonous and steady, like the everyday grind of people going to work and completing the same routine again and again. There is no harp throughout this whole movement. This movement almost seems fitting for a funeral march, and that's kinda the way adulthood is.

The last movement, Elderhood, is lively and similar in some aspects to Childhood. The piano has a more technical part to play, pushing the movement to have extra energy. However, the string parts are very similar to the parts in Adulthood. It's almost a battle between the somberness of the string instruments and the persistent energy of the piano and harp. I think that models elderhood.
