From composer Alejandro Guardia Jr.:

“The saying ‘It is always darkest before the dawn’ is the inspiration of this piece. The piece begins with the soloist playing the slow sorrowful melodt as the piano pans a heavy chord progression. This progression is the basis of the theme and variations that follow. As the piece develops, the soloist and the accompaniment try to escape the distress and grief. Just as it seems as if there is no end to the suffering, the soloist pushes through the busy accompaniment and breaks free from the chains of its depression. The opening melody is now played in a major key in the upper register of the instrument, showing that a silver lining has been found, hope prevails and a new day has risen.”
