||The right hand is indicated as "sempre 8ve" in each of the pieces if played by piano. However, if you are playing them on celesta, ignore that and play the left and an octave lower as well, since celesta already sounds an octave higher than written. It should sound in the same range as the piano version.

I had come-up with these three tunes between 1989-1991, and I was initially planning on using them in various parts of Op.15, which is a work I had originally planned to be a suite for piano and orchestra. In those days I had only composed the first piece of the suite, the toccata for piano. But later, when I decided to leave Op.15 as a toccata by itself, I wrote-down these three tunes separately.
