Misc. Comments

Chinese Pinball: I wanted to write something pseudo-Chinese, so basically pentatonic. The picture of a pinball came to mind while composing: I thought some passages sounded like arcade music for a Chinese pinball. Nothing deeper than that.

Habanera: I'm no habanera expert but I guess it can be defined as a habanera.

Sackcloth & Ashes: intended to be the slow movement, it refers to the ancient Hebrew custom of "wearing a coarse cloth, normally used to make sacks, and dusting oneself with ashes" (dictionary.com), indicating repentance and humility. I don't actually remember why and if I had to repent, anyway.

A Cunning Plan: catchphrase from the tv series Blackadder. Rowan Atkinson's "I've got a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel" from season three was particularly inspiring.
