programme note:

This work, whose title means "necklace", is a sequence of 15 short movements, lasting between nine and ten minutes. Eight of its sections, A to H, form the "string" of the necklace, and are in the form of recitatives which exploit specialised techniques of playing. By contrast, the "beads" are the rather longer sections I-VII, in which emotional and gestural differences are more strongly articulated. Sections A-H centre round the middle of the instrument's range, and focus on the two middle strings to a considerable extent.
