Work introduction

Composed for Paul Sacher’s 70th birthday, this short piece is based on the dedicatee’s name. The initial tempo is slow, as the pitch material is as it were introduced. Variations follow, according to the commission, which Rostropovich negotiated; the music becomes ever more animated, passionate, virtuosic. Despite its brevity, listeners experience its musical richness.
