Each of the titles of the five movements in this piece were taken from a number of events, real or imaginary, in the lives of Alexander the Great and his war horse, Bucephalus. The piece was written for Gyorgy Ligeti's 60th birthday and was commissioned by the Alexander String Quartet with support of Chamber Music America and the Connecticut Commission for the Arts.
