With this homage, the composer bows to J.S. Bach by repackaging seemingly familiar things and listening sensitively after melody fragments and harmonies. The violin part, mostly supported by the piano in unison (like a simultaneous echo), 'shades' itself in the middle section with tiny echoes composed in detail. Thanks to Gidon Kremer, this three-part composition (also entitled 'Dedication' or 'Tribute to J.S.B.) has traveled half the world since 2010.
