I shall present my analysis of this piece in three sections. First I will discuss the construction of the solo piano part. In relation to the title of the work, this part signifies “the curve”. Since the piano part is the formal backbone of the piece, I shall include my consideration of work’s form in this section. Next I shall discuss the rest of the ensemble, i.e. “the points”. Finally I will discuss the co-evolution of the solo piano and the ensemble.
