Written on a trip to Tokyo while a student on a Japanese Government scholarship, and dedicated to my brother Peter Carey, this piece stems from the interval of a major seventh played by both instruments at the beginning of the piece. After several variations of the material we hear a chorale with violin and piano in rhythmic unison; a brief canonic section leads to a resolution of sorts – the major seventh of the opening is now diminished, played on the piano along with the open strings of the violin.
