These miniatures present various genres for the vibraphone. The prelude has an ethereal character and features an alternation of passages with bows and mallets. The canon that follows is in stark contrast to the prelude with its contrapuntal texture and sprightly tempo. The canon is not strict—the following voice is frequently varied from the leading one and the canonic texture is often reset. The melody of the chorale is original and the motor is used to create a pseudo vibrato in order to connect more to the vocal origin of this genre.
