To Xenia

This second piece / iteration / instance is the return of the suite’s themes, replayed after, and corrupted by, all the other variations: three movements become two, chaos organises itself, structures crumble. Moreover, the ‘aria da capo’ is the section in which a soloist traditionally demonstrates his/her virtuosity: a fitting bias for this piece’s concerns.


Thanks to Xenia Pestova for her talent, dedication, and patience, and to the Roli team and Sebastian Berweck for their support.
