Acquerello (watercolour) revolves around two quiet and contrasting ideas - one slow, one fast. The principal idea is a slow and highly ornamented descending line. Sometimes the line is stripped of all ornamentation and moves instead in chords. Three times this is interrupted with a short, fast refrain.

Acquerello was wriiten in 1998
