    Composer's notes, by Reena Esmail:
    "This piece is about that first moment of trust, of softening. About the most inward moments of the human experience, of realizing that ‘breakthroughs’ often don’t have the hard edge, the burst of energy that the word implies, but that they can be about finding tender, warm, deeply resonant spaces within ourselves as well."

    Originally composed for choir and cello, based on the Hindustani raga "Charukeshi", this solo violin version was adapted for unaccompanied violin by Reena to be performed as part of the 2020 Nancy Hanks Lecture on Art and Public Policy, presented by Americans For the Arts by Vijay Gupta in June, 2020.
    ***
    Recorded on September 29, 2020 at All Saints Church in Pasadena, CA.
