Program notes

The title refers to the process of building both the basic cells of the form and the whole work. The sound material is structured in such a way that it always seeks an answer to the question: how is it possible to harmonize the moment of improvisation, with a constant need for form. Improvisation - as a way of developing given models - takes a leading place in the solo section, requiring the soloist to be actively creative, by which he "pulls" the whole ensemble and in a way "dictates" the value and immediacy of the performance.
