intro

Here is my best explanation:

'piece of music' is the definition.
(intro is a kind of piece of music)

'enthusiastic about grabbing composer's final' is the wordplay.
'enthusiastic about' becomes 'into' (I've seen this before).
'grabbing' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'final' suggests the final letters.
The final letter of 'composer' is 'r'.
'into' enclosing 'r' is 'INTRO'.
