Dedicated to the memory of my grandfather Carl-Erik Forslund (1921-2019). This piece constitutes the beginning of a series of musical pieces named Intermezzo, followed by a number. They are not meant to be particularly ambitious or challenging for the pianist nor the listener for that matter. Simple but not naive has been the goal when writing them. That is also how I perceived my grandfather.
