The Tears of Niobe" is scored for an ensemble of 10 musicians at one piano plucking the strings or bowing them with loops of material. There are also many exciting rhythmic textures. Niobe who challenged the goddess Latona by declaring that she was beautiful and also had seven daughters and seven sons, and was therefore to be preferred to the goddess. Latona gets her revenge by causing the deaths of Apollo and Diana and then the rest of Niobe's children, slaying them with divine arrows. Then, Niobe's distraught husband Amphion commits suicide.
