A collection of piano solos in which short phrases appear and disappear.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"Blumenstück for piano was composed in 1984 as a personal sonic meditation.
This piece celebrates the beauty of the piano's sound through its gentleness and slowness.

All the sounds in this work are derived from a word list containing the names of 168 flowers.
All letters in these names are assigned to notes on the keyboard.It follows a fixed system.

Each note must be played as long and softly as possible.
After the attack, all sounds must disappear into silence. "
