'Anake' – Maori for alone – is a set of three pieces. The first contrasts fragmentary ideas with slower wide-ranging melodic lines. These ideas are extended into a shimmering virtuosic diversion in the second piece, and the third turns the slower music into a desolate lament. This third piece was written with a line from Federico Garcia Lorca's lament for the bullfighter Ignacio Sanchez Mejias in mind: 'Bones and flutes sound in his ears'.
