Dedicated to Tímea Johanna Németh. Originally borne from a composition game, and based on a melodic theme
of mine (of which only a distortion survives in the final suite, the original 1st movement having been abandoned).Broadly speaking, the suite explores simple pentatonic melodies in the contexts of polytonality and interrelated harmonic fields. Comprised of 3 movements, separated by 2 shorter musical interludes.
