Commentary

"Anagnoresis" is either an alternate spelling for, or a typo for, "Anagnorisis", which means the moment some profound realization is suddenly made. There is no such particular moment during this piece. However, the second snare beat in each measure is on the and-of-four instead of on four, in a sort of attempt to make your ears wait for it and then go, "oh, there it is."
