This piece for Woodwind Quintet is a collection of four short episodes which all share the same general form. This is meant to suggest the perception of a subject on four separate occasions, noting though that each viewing is made through a different "lens" of sorts. The result is an exploration of the many facets of the theme introduced in the first movement. Do take note that this is not intended to be a complete exploration, as the music should retain a sense of mystery over the entire duration of the work, suggesting that there is still music to understand regarding our musical subject.
