A few author’s notes on the source of inspiration for this composition: „…We had already performed together with the string quartett Appolón several times when the violinist Radek Křižanovský came with the idea that it would not be bad to have a broader repertoire in common. The idea to actually write a new composition occured to me at Panera, a little café in Bloomington, within a two-hour drive distance southward from Chicago. I had just ordered a cup of Columbian coffee that was described as „Dark and Vibrant“. So, there was nothing left for me to do but to finish the composition later on in Prague."

"The piano part of the piece includes improvisation passages, and let it be said that it does not necessarily have to be only jazz improvisation. The pianist-improviser can just as well choose an utterly modern approach, making use of the indicated bitonalities…“
