It's more theme and variations than counterpoint.
It feels so south Pacific to me. I get very woozy around part 8, I think it is, the bit that feels like the theme is being dragged backwards through a tunnel.
I notice Michael Rother spent part of his childhood in Pakistan, where I imagine the blue sky and dry air contrasts with the German climate. Not that German music is any stranger to sweetness. I am halfway through a book on the 30 years war. Amazingly complicated.
