A simple, thoughtful piece for solo flute. The title refers not only to the musical devices used in the main theme but also on another level to our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes our reflections can be sad or stormy, but in this piece at least the ending is optimistic, with the calmer opening theme returning triumphant.
The notes marked sfzp, from bar 72, should be played with hard, plosive tonguing but little remaining note - the Sibelius playback doesn't really do this effect justice!
