This is the first in a set of twelve meditations for solo piano. This advanced composition (4:15) is a slow build, starting with a whisper but ending in an all-out roar. The composition is patterned around the chaconne, a form similar to the more familiar theme and variations. But instead of a melodic theme, the chaconne uses either a repeated bass line or chord progression to build upon.
The first few iterations of this piece are rather simple, but by the last two iterations, the performer must make large leaps with both hands, playing dense chord clusters. By far, this piece took me the longest to learn to play, though the composition came to me quickly.
