Criminal Intentions is the story of a late-night jewelry thief who gets caught. The first section represents the criminal conceiving of the plan to enter the store, grab the jewelry, and drive away without getting caught. Next, the second section is the act of breaking in and stealing from the store. And, just like the criminal had thought, it goes off almost as smoothly as he had imagined. As the thief is about to escape, he is surrounded by police, which forces the criminal to contemplate how he can escape while he sneaks around the store looking for any escape routes. This is depicted in the third section with the right hand playing several ostinati (repeated patterns) while the left hand performs several winding melodies on the bells and multi- percussion instruments. Finally, the last section depicts police rushing into the store, capturing the thief, and slapping the cuffs on him.
