The work Path (1987) unfolds so to say from top to bottom. The descending line is metonymic with the path through life – from birth to grave. The beginning flageolets of the cellos and the simple motif of the harpsichord, as well as the end – the cellos' play with pegs (bischero), which detunes the instruments – in combination with the last glissando of the harpsichord (col spazzole/with a brush) entirely unveils from two sides the sense of this piece.
