The idea for Reinbert de Leeuw and Vera Beths was to create an operatic work of the "Chanson Russe" in and of itself by playing the piece multiple times, changing the mute on each round. Thus, the work is played eight times with that transmission of intent and method taking place in each fresh rendition. A work of haunting, hunted beauty, it feels like memory, loss, grief, and longing folded into a suitcase of wistful melancholy. Short melody lines, resembling folk dances and peasant anthems, are juxtaposed against a chromatic palette of pianistic harmonics that recall Chopin's.
