Programme Notes / Performance Details : The piece starts with rolled chords that create a mysterious atmosphere. This then turns to weaving figures in sixteenth notes that first repeat the chord progression in a broken manner which in turn transform to a melody with an Oriental air. The texture becomes denser and thicker reaching a climax after which a dream like passage (in octaves) leads to the very last section which is agitated and exciting. Over a virtuosic bass ostinato fragments of the previous melodies appear in various guises. The music soars on and becomes coarser until a sudden drop onto the lower part of the Marimba. The very last sentences are calm and contemplating while evoking previous thematic material
