It is also all about vibration: from the tiniest—the bow hair exciting the string with its thousands of minute fibres, the vibration of vibrato on a single note; a two-note figure rocking backwards and forwards; all the differently shaded chords throughout the piece—to the huge seven-octave-span vibration at the end. Best enjoyed in a darkened and quiet room at a moment of the day when nothing at all is pressing on your mind.
