Work introduction

In an engaging commentary on the piece the composer reflects on himself, yet at the same time looks at his music from outside and arrives at conclusions which characterise this 2005 work, and his own personality, in exciting ways. After over 40 years’ creative activity he has acquired a crystal-clear perception of the act of composition and drawn conclusions for himself, such as: I am tired of the monomaniac spinning-out of musical ideas, of expansion by means of “working-out”. … But I was also somewhat weary of my own “good handiwork”, with things I’ve done often and can “do well”.
