Lamento for G , for Octet (2 Flt., Hpsd., 2Vln., Vla., Vc., Cb.)
The note G is absent from this work (except for the last seconds). This Lamento develops this absence in various forms. From the beginning on, G is attracted and surrounded but it does not appear. At the last 3 measures, G is played in harmonics by the first violin.
Lamento for G refers to the note G and G stands for Geo, Earth, symbolizing our planet. G(eo) is imprisoned inside a constant cloud of 11 notes, like a precious jewel locked inside a plastic package. Only in the last seconds, G(eo) weakly manifests itself; a proof of its survival.
