Composed: Length: c. The final section of Stele incorporates the theme of said piano piece. The fighting rages all around him, but he sees only a very clear, very blue sky His feeling is that nothing is as important as this sky.

The final movement, muted and maximally eerie, fixates on a spread-out chord that repeatedly quivers forth in quintuplet rhythms.

At the very end the harmony shifts to the white-note keys of the C-major scale, all seven of them sounding in a luminous smear Stele , by contrast, limps through a parched, depopulated landscape Those opening octave Gs lead via slowly-moving glissandos and shuddering vibrations into darkest lamentation, with falling minor seconds suggestive of hopelessness.

But there is a transcendent moment after the deafening climax: a brief silence, then, as if beamed in from far out in space, the gentle sound of six flutes, before the full orchestra resumes its attack. The finale, with its ritual repetition of a bell sounding through the orchestra, is an elusive mix of despair and ultimately, as suggested above, that hobbled figure moving on into Herbert Glass, after many years as a columnist for the Los Angeles Times , has been the English-language annotator and editor for the Salzburg Festival for more than a decade.
