Written in 1991, on the invitation of Musica d'Oggi (Music of Today), Ginius runs through a brief but intense temporal itinerary, based on formal gestures that are instrumentally characterised by plasticity. The events which take place within this urgent dialectic are strongly influenced by the essential character of the instrument.

It does not seem necessary to say anything else, when dealing with a composition that was imagined as it would be listened to, and was written with this goal in mind.
