Movement I  
The beginning of this movement provides much of the musical data for the rest of the piece.  Gentle and legato lines evolve into driving eighth note harmonies in the middle section.  Three times, there are significant pauses which may seem uncomfortable but, “waiting" (patience) can be a difficult process.  At the end of each time of silence and meditation, the performers work together to move forward in unity.  

This movement ends with a retrograde (reverse order) of the first section in the piano part.  Listen for the delicate but consistent flow of eighth notes which begin and end this movement.


Therunning sixteenth-note patterns in the piano contrast with theflowing, legato clarinet line at the beginning.  Midway,there is an echo of the beginning of the first movement with aslightly more vigorous accent of sixteenth notes in the piano partwhile the clarinet counters with a graceful melody. The movementends with a quiet variation of the beginning of the firstmovement—using an irregular meter of five-four time.


Acadenza-like solo for the clarinet opens this movement which againincorporates musical information from the first movement. The pianoenters and both parts slowly develop a limited group of notes in AbDorian as they, seemingly, grow in expectation of the arrival of theclimax of the piece, This part is also a variation of the apex ofthe first movement. The last section is a retrograde, in bothparts, of the first 20 measures of the first movement, with slightvariations.
