A composite piece, its three movements taken from the first volume of the suite Reminiscences were extended in order to form a distinct work. The term 'melancholic' came to the composer's mind on account of the constantly shifting modulations, as if nothing is stable and assured in our earthly existence, and also because of the overall slow, reflective, tempos.
