Score

 

The piece’s name is derived from two Greek words: ksénos – “foreign”, “strange” and brachýs – “short”. Therefore the meaning represents something brief and containing extraneous material. In this case, it is the closing chord based on the Chopin chord as well as the value of the difference between Fibonacci's successive arguments, which builds primary rhythmical structure of the piece.

Commissioned by the Polish Composers’ Union (ZKP) for its 70th anniversary.
