Program Notes

Largo was a commission from the Chiba Prefectural Fanabashi-Nishi Senior High School Wind Band, under the direction of Tadaichiro Hirakawa. Program notes from the score state that since the debut of Yagisawa's music, Hirakawa has performed much of the composer's music and has developed a good relationship with Yagisawa from this association The request of the commission was to have the composer write a piece in his early chorale style, to be performed and heartfelt feeling and enjoyment. The premiere of the composition took place at a concert of the school band in June 2010.

Although Largo contains original music and not that of an ancient cultural folk song passed down through the generations, the importance of Yagisawa's composition to the literature is that it continues to preserve his culture's heritage and to promote and support this for future generation in a manner that makes it accessible to students, conductors, scholar and audience.
