Comments  Four or Five Studies takes a three note motive and beats it to death in a variety of creative ways. Some of the beatings overlap, so you might count four or five different treatments of the material, depending on how you look at these things. (Actually, you could call it three studies with some transitional material.) Only the motive is beaten upon, no musicians were harmed during the composition of this piece.
