Work introduction

At the end some of the impetus is lost. With an ironic wink Vykintas Baltakas has produced a bravura piece, concise and insistent, for two female and two male voices: Instructions for an old love-charm, to bind your beloved to you forever.

An almost mechanical and yet subtly differentiated rhythm until an abrupt end.

Lothar Knessl
