This piece, scored for Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, Bassoon and Piano is a continuously unfolding series of vignettes that last from a bar or two to over 8 bars. As the title implies, Intention drives all action and in this context propels us from one vignette to the next. The mood shifts constantly and there are many tempo changes throughout, and while highly chromatic there are periodic ‘tonal’ areas that appear and then dissolve back into chromatic activity.
