Notation: 1981, good quality with general timing
Consultancy: Required

This solo has a haunting and mysterious quality. It requires excellent technique and stage presence. Much of the movement is slow, although there is one brief "presto" section.
A "six o'clock" arabesque is required. It was notated as it was taught by members of the Joyce Trisler company for the purpose of notation, shortly after Tristler's death.
