“Thinking about the immortality of a crab” is a Spanish idiom meaning to let one’s mind wander or “daydream”. The three short movements of this piece evoke different ways in which one’s mind wanders; rapid succession of thoughts running through one’s mind, inattention due to one’s mind being on other things, and the interruption of one’s “train of thought”.
