The painting depicts a (Carpathian) mountain landscape. A river flows between green and blue mountain peaks. A yelllow sun shines in the blue sky that is dotted with white cumulus clouds. Musical instruments (trumpet, violin, clarinet, flutes, lute, and cymbals) hang from two large birch trees growing on the near bank of the river. An open book (apparently Psalms) lies on the ground underneath the trees. A drum with drumsticks also lies on the ground near the book.
