    The poem, constructed upon a base of short phrases with evident musicality and a deliberately ambiguous content, is translated into the musical piece with brief and changing motifs in the initial and final movements and with nostalgia in the central movement. The division into three movements relates to the general structure of the sonata, a backward glance that also makes reference to the great sonatas of the 20th century for clarinet and piano such as those by Hindemith and Poulenc.
    Written in 1981, it was premiered at Sala Zeleste in Barcelona in May 1983 by the composer and pianist Manuel Cabero. It has been recorded on CD by Ars Harmonica.
