Well, this piece was almost renamed to Itza Bichin Ichin because of my current vicious attack of hives! It is the first of a free (quite !!) fantasy on a familiar phrase, which may not be so easily recognized. I have used the pedal very extensively because the desired sonority demands it. The result is some blurring, which is the effect I wanted. The remainder of the work is still rattling around in my skull, and will eventually find its way here.
