“The Never-ending Ocean of Identity” is a reworked movement from my 2017 piano suite ‘Homage a Lola Perrin’. It is yet another tribute to the beautiful and thought-provoking style of the pianist-composer Lola Perrin, being similarly inspired by her own piano suites. The musical content consists of a simple motif which develops and morphs itself melodically throughout the short composition.
