Description

This piece of music owes a lot to an amber or honey shade of topaz. Topaz is the birth stone of the composer’s maternal grandmother, and the above tint still stands out in the composer’s memory. It can be said that other shades of topaz, such as blue and yellow, also appear in the music. Also, where no long strands of melody emerge, the interval of a major second permeates the texture. This interval appears frequently, as it occurs against different arpeggios and harmonic backgrounds. These chords and arpeggios then work to create unique splashes and effects of color.
