Auguries” refers to the ancient Roman prac­tice of augury – the inter­pret­ing of the observed behav­ior of birds as omens of things to come. Two thou­sand years lat­er, peo­ple pos­sess proven sci­en­tif­ic means of deter­min­ing future out­comes from ver­i­fied phys­i­cal data, yet tend not to take heed in many instances. The omi­nous nature of this music sug­gests an admo­ni­tion about the dis­as­trous pos­si­bil­i­ties that can grow from ignor­ing actu­al warn­ing signs. The abrupt end­ing of the piece offers no bright prospect. The warn­ing stays in effect.
