Misc. Comments

Meditation describes it accurately… sort of like a composer ruminating about life and cosmic stuff, then putting these thoughts to sound. The sound is that early 20th-century atonal sound, but is surprisingly delicate. Though seemingly quite straightforward rhythmically, it is intended to sound like a rubato meditation, indications of which are in the score.

Maybe it would make a nice encore piece if the audience wanted to mellow out on the way home... say after hearing the Prokofiev toccata or its ilk.
