The early gladly follows through different stages - and then, a small element, a little portamento on the clarinet (the kiss of the little old woman?), is enough to let us know that it is almost over. The music proceeds, delicate, determiend; it draws a line that it follows, in the second movement it even moves along a kind of walking bass line. Its dramatic climax continues in the third movement, which is about ''The Monster and the Big Yellow Poppies''. Deep, powerful chords on the piano - and high notes fluttering above: there's something threatening about it. The movement Read more ends iwth an almost menacing fortissimo. Are we scared? Or was that just another intimidating artifice of the Wizard of Oz?'' (Thomas Meyer) Read less
