This piece is in three sections with an ”ad libitum” interlude between the second and the third section. The first section is presented as a wild toccata which is dissolved in a spherical middle section. According to the wishes of the performer this middle section leads to either a thoroughly composed caesura or a steadily flowing end section that turns into silence. Throughout the piece there are a number of melodies in different tempi below the surface. All in all these fractured melodies form the explosive toccata as a middle section as well as a diluted end section.
