1922 and 2009

The two dates that Lukas arrived and departed.

The numbers of those years were assigned the few notes that create all the melodic material for my work. Four only notes starting with the F representing the number one. (1=F, 9=C#, 2= F#, 0=D). As the end approaches and while the piano slowly departs the rest of the orchestra rises and protests. Like the way he left us without fanfares and declarations. For my beloved friend and teacher Lukas. Apostolos Paraskevas
