    With its impressive range of gentle shades and hues, this composition plays with memories of Franz Liszt's late piano pieces La lugubre gondola I and II. Manfred Trojahn likewise presents subdued melodies floating above an undulating accompaniment. These are the fantasies of a contemporary composer who creates something new from an historic texture by subtly recasting it. Suddenly the otherwise tranquil flow is broken by a scurrying interloper – a reminiscence of the great virtuoso pianist Franz Liszt?
