The key element of this composition consists of 4 notes: Bb, B, F and D. They are always present in the whole work. Be it as a chain (transposed or normal), development in the chords, or as a reversal. These notes have a major and a diminished chord. Individually they sound trivial but together they give a tension that is felt throughout the whole work. The shape of the composition is very exciting, solo, touched and concerned (Impensierito) or simply powerful packaged as if it were a suite. The new style of writing, unlike before, provides the composer with another way to express his feeling in music. A kind of Continuation. The composition is dedicated to Marco Pütz as a thank you. He was Kleren’s teacher's in instrumentation and orchestration.
