From the opus "Three Preludes and Fugues" composed between 1958-1960, performed by Lilian Semper.

Veljo Tormis, one of the top composers of choir music in today's Estonia, has written extremely few pieces for solo instruments. Of those 3, Preludes and Fugues remains one of the most remarkable, due to its idiosyncratic combination of folk-derived material, rigorous polyphonic structures and 20th century compositional methods.
Preludes and Fugues is dedicated to Lilian Semper, the first performer of the work.
- Text from the album "Lilian Semper Mängib" by Ingrid Laumets, English translation: Tiit Kusnets.
