This is pleasant,relaxing armchair music, which doesn’t actually get particularly loud. I have Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909) to thank for a motif that recurs throughthe piece – a short section of his "Gran Vals", which you mayrecognise. I have omitted the last noteof the original melody, which is actually an octave down from a more familiarversion you may know. Before this motifmade its way into this piece I had considered a title along the lines of Cycleof Thirds for harmonic reasons which may be obvious. But I put that idea permanently on hold aftertrying to get through to a utilities company. In retrospect, I should have ensured that the end looped neatly back tothe beginning (which sadly it doesn’t quite), so that I could attempt to sell arecording of this piece to businesses for their call waiting music.
