for violin solo
The title was taken from a poem by Fernando Pessoa.
First part: playing of different timbres (quarter-tones, sul tasto, flautando, sul ponticello etc.) with regard to the dynamics pp-p-mp.
The second part is inspired by the preludes of Louis Couperin and has to be played freely as far as rhythm and combinations are concerned, but must respect the order of the notes. Difficult.
