See Siang Wong gave the first performance of the piano piece Trifolium which Kelterborn extended into a six-part cycle. The third and fifth of these piano pieces are dedicated to See Siang Wong, who gave the first performance of the complete cycle. Kelterborn has given each of his six studies a title, which hints at their spirit. Kelterborn describes the third as ‘Night-Piece’, and the fourth as ‘Winter music’. The fifth carries the title ‘Blurred’, indicating something hazy or indistinct. The dynamic level is reduced to pppp; this reduction of sound and the many rests in the piece give a feeling of desolation.
