The title Social Etudes refers to the interaction of the players who begin all together on one instrument and eventually move to six individual setups. It also refers to the differing ways the notattion binds them together or separates them. The conductor's role also varies throughout the piece, at times a strict regulator of activity and at others a very general guide.
