"It's a beautiful tone poem, one of her last pieces...She knew she was dying when she wrote this and it's also set against the backdrop of World War One. The very end is fascinating to me as she manages to keep mysterious whether it's positive or not. The music until then is very minor, very dark, and then there's this moment where it's like the window has been opened. Just as we're lulled into sunny optimism, she subtly and beautifully leaves the chord without the third - so we can't tell whether it's major or minor."
Violinist Jennifer Pike, interviewed in BBC Music magazine
