About the work

The piece was written at the request of Jill Phillips in 1973. It can be played by piano with any one of violin, viola, or cello, or all three strings, or any two of the three.

Technical notes

The tempo is very slow, the overall dynamic is soft, and players of bowed instruments will need to use maximum vibrato and position shifting.
