The piece was written in the beginning of 2017. The first movement (Toccata) has two parts consisting of a slow and a faster section. The second movement (Aria) is the harmonization and elaboration of a one-part, then a two-part melody with special piano effects. The virtuosic, chaconne-like third movement (Hommage à K.P.) makes reference to the baroque genre as well as the harmonic cycles of mainstream pop songs. The last movement (Epilogue) is the longest one of the cycle balancing the materials and emotions of the previous movements. The composition’s post-functional harmonic language has its roots in traditional functional tonality while rethinking and re-contextualizing the connection with it.
