The singer is gently musing, but soon her head is filled with a torrent of thoughts and concerns, all demanding immediate attention. The violist (or is he the maître d' ?) observes and accompanies her lurching mood swings, but does not participate in them. Both instructor and instructed, the singer is by turns demanding, generous, and tormented, overwhelmed by the speed of her thoughts. The violist, occasionally impatient, is mostly indifferent.
