Writing for a solo instrument is quite a challenge because of the lack of a harmonic element, but listening to a classical concert in a church in France I was struck by how the reverb of the church allowed a solo instrument playing arpeggios to build up a strong sense of harmony, and I wanted to hear more complex harmonies built up in this way. That was the starting point. I wrote this piece in the following five days with the vague scenario that it would be unsettled, searching, unpredictable even quirky until the third movement which finally provided something more relaxed and settled.
