Program Notes

This work has a unique structure. The main part, which appears after the introduction, is colored by various modalities and distracting transpositions, and the optimism develops freely and reaches the metallic style. Then, after going through a slow transition part, a caricature middle part appears in Allegro, contrary to the past. Returning to the prelude where the tempo was dropped again and the tempo dropped, the song closed with Codeta.

There is nothing that can be called a motif, but the continuity of homophony shown from the beginning is a unified principle in forming a melody throughout the song. Also, it is intended for utterances and singing expressions, and literally expresses both the lyricism and the slander of the song. It is a small piece that vividly resonates with the abstract and contrast between the opening and closing orders.
