opposition is true friendship

enough text

this proverb is the underlying concept and the sung text for the last section of the piece. {in fact, it is possible to perform this last section on its own: it was originally written for soprano, piano, and acoustic bass.} As you will notice, the piece devolves into the bach chorale es ist genug (it is enough) at the end. you can go here to hear about how I embedded a reference to this piece into my orchestra piece, the continuous life.
