The long pedal tones in the first part (bars 1-59) should be played as smooth and even as possible, only the occasional soloistic attacks are supposed to stick out due to an intense expressivity. In the second part (bars 60-95) the intensity of these solo parts turns to a mechanical and fierce monotony which stays continuous until the last bar, independently from the gradually decreasing density.
The rhythm should always be executed with high accuracy.
