Article 1. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Article 3. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Article 4. No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Article 6. Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
Article 14. Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.
The solo violin suite proclaims these rights through a musical journey in contrasting colors, illustrating the trials and tribulations of man in his evolution towards freedom while illuminating the joy of liberation and vision of a future world of peace and justice.
