︎︎︎Note

This piece is to be played extremely softly. There must be no sense of dramatic movement. Dynamic balance is of the utmost importance. I have strived to make things as clear as possible, but I have also counted on the conductor’s ability to be a sound engineer, to make absolutely sure that everyone plays softly and beautifully.
