Programme note:
This concerto contains a lot of technical and structural stuff that I have forgotten all about now. Without it though, the piece would have been a big mess of emotions, since it was written while my family and I were taking care of my mother as she was terminally ill. I recognize it having become a kind of rondo. The music wanted a place to return to, and perhaps it is due to the fact that my mother was always someone I could return to when everything else was exploding. In the end, the rondo dies and the music goes somewhere else, like all mothers.
