The piece consists of three short monolithic movements with the focus on texture. The title Delta refers to:

1) The fourth letter in the Greek alphabet and its uppercase letter, which has the shape of a triangle. The three movements of the piece could be seen as the three corners of a triangle that shape the piece’s form.

2) A river delta. All of the three movements have a flowing character and they symbolize the three rivers that form a river delta.
