Program Notes

“I am always impressed by the expansive earth and sparkling ocean scenery when I come to Kyushu. I have met many local people here and they are all expressive and energetic. I wrote this dramatic piece to convey to the whole of Japan the memory of my experience here, swaying in the west wind. I wrote this hoping that the Self Defense Force will forge close ties with the community through this piece.”

- Program note by composer

The world premiere took place in February 2010, performed by the leader Michiru Takahashi and the Japan Ground Self Defense Force Western Army Band, together with player from other Ground Self Defense Force Army bands in the territory of Kyushu.
