for horn (c. 9')
Autolalia consists of several soliloquies, played in an order determined by each individual player. This gives each performer the ability to distinguish their interpretation using musical form and the structure of the entire piece, rather than just phrasing or tempo. This plays into the deeper meaning of Autolalia, not only referring to the concept of speaking to one's self during a soliloquy, but also the appreciation of how each performer's mind is reflected in the organization of the piece, as well as phrasing and tempo.
