The work comprises three movements, each set to a tempo
marking of 76 beats per minute. However, each movement's
mood is quite distinct from the other two. The first
movement is a bolero, with a distinct Spanish flavor and
rhythms. It opens and closes with the advanced saxophone
technique of slap-tonguing. The second movement is set
as a funeral march, a form the composer returns to from
time to time to keep himself mindful of the brevity of
life on this earth. The mournful outer sections contrast
with a rather anguished outcry of grief in the middle.
The third movement forms a whirlwind tarantella to close
the work. Composed in 2008 for and recorded by Kenneth
Tse. Total duration 14.25 minutes.
