Colleagues present. In this performance and the previous one at Lincoln Center, I felt free to allow fancy to direct my timing and dynamics in many of the variations, and colleagues with whom I spoke approved. The opening statement and the two dotted rhythm variations seem to function as an Introduction, the dotted rhythms recalling to my mind French Overture.
