This solo was the 2005 winner of the Lynn Freeman Olson Composition Award. Written in 6/8 meter and the key of D minor, the piece is in A-B-A form. The A section has the melody in the left hand with a broken-chord accompaniment in the right hand. The B section is slower and chorale-like. The return of the A section is followed by a short coda.
