Program Notes

This is a flexible quintet plus percussion instrument work that was composed by a commissioned piece as a task piece for the 1981 Japan Brass Band Competition. It is a song that uses folk songs as a material in the pursuit of "wa" based on traditional Japanese music and Japanese music. It is also a song that showed the possibility of creating a sound space of "wa" with Western wind instruments.

Basically, I compose with J-Pentatonic (Type 1/Folk Song Scale), so it is possible to create originality in the freedom of flexible formation. Depending on the musical range of the musical instrument, the voice parts can be exchanged up and down, and it is possible to respond in a folk-like and ad-lib manner, so there is no discomfort.

The content structure of the song is the same as the original song. The first half is a relaxed natural appearance centered on the Nanbu beef chant, and the second half is a dance that uses Tsugaru Jongarabushi, Shonai Obako, and Nanbu Norikata.
