Misc. Comments

The first complete revised version (2012) assembles disparate thoughts (juvenilia) jotted down in the early sixties. The seams remain apparent, but can be viewed as characteristic of the piece. The latest version (2014) is a complete overhaul with extensive editing and note nudging (comprising some minor additions and corrections) plus an effort to stitch together more closely the 15 or so necessarily contrasting sequences and change of moods. The new audio performance with Pianoteq instead of Pianissimo or Garritan approaches this ambition as realistically as possible.
