Flute and guitar duo, along with string quartet, perform three movements based on Sephardic folk songs. The common theme is love just out of reach: the sad hope of finding love, the unrequited love for an older woman, the spurned love of the unfaithful (Searching, rejection, and loss, as Leisner says). The relevant folk songs are stated within each of the pieces - at the beginning of the first, in the middle of the second, at the end of the third, and are used as the base for Leisner's stream-of-conciousness meditations.
