If a piano is part of an ensemble, all other instrumentalists have to tune their instruments after it. In addition, they have to adjust their intonation to the well tempered piano tones, which would not be necessary, for example in a string quartet. The harmonies in “gedrängt vorüberziehend” try to counteract this automatism. Although the restriction of the piano on twelve notes (keys) per octave must be taken into account, the more flexible string instruments can enrich the piano tones with spectral details. In order to keep the joy of playing, some harmonic more free passages are integrated.
