Program Notes

Japanese composer Satoshi Yagisawa creates works with evocative and descriptive titles such as Voyage–Flight into a Hopeful Future, Moai–the Seven Giant Statues Gazing at the Sun, Pompeii–The Ruins Know the Long and Magnificent History, and his 2020 work for wind ensemble: Quarantine. A graduate of the Musashino Academy of Music in Tokyo, and a trained musicologist, he is an in-demand clinician, conductor, and academic writer.

He writes this about And Then the Ocean Glows:

And Then the Ocean Glows was commissioned by Niihama Grade School and its director, Mr. Shinichi Tagawa, and completed in April of 2002. Mr. Tagawa and I titled the piece together, drawing from sectional themes of ‘Shining Morning Ocean’, Wind Stormy Ocean’ and ‘Large Mother Ocean.’ Before I began composing the piece, I visited Niihama’s rehearsal and met the band’s inspired young students. The work’s theme and melodies are enjoyable and compelling for musicians; I would be delighted for bands to experience this fresh composition.
