Description: Based on three Tarot cards: the Magician, representing ambiguity, with music shifting suddenly from the mysterious and solemn to the cunning and dexterous; the High Priestess, possessing wisdom, passion and secrets of the law, her music is calm but slowly ignites into throbbing desire; the Fool, considered both the holy mystic and the intoxicated lunatic, embodies music of both comedy and chaos.
