Work introduction

This work is “… very difficult (an indirect and perhaps somewhat shameless homage to Paganini’s Capriccios), relentlessly repeating, developing and transforming the basic harmony. It is an étude of form, of repetition, the correlation of patterns which frequently recur and some which appear only once. The piece is predominantly about harmonic structures – yet it ends with the unexpected and amazing formation of a melody.” (Luciano Berio)
