Program Notes

An interwoven theme builds power and develops from serene chorales and an energetic fugue, layering and conjoining, as the composer reveals the harmonic power of each development. Fukushima proves his artistic skill, fully understanding the musical potential of the wind orchestra.

- Program Note from publisher

In 2015, the work was commissioned by the Hiroshima Symphonic Familia Wind Orchestra, and it was revised and newly written with the same title.

As the title suggests, it is a "lyrical fantasy song". It's not a title music that expresses a story, but when I heard "Hiroshima", a commissioned organization, "Atomic bomb" came to my mind. On the contrary, it seems to be a prejudice against "Hiroshima", and I decided to express it only by the development of music without touching the title musical elements such as "Atomic bomb". However, even so, I think this song has emotions that cannot be wiped off even if it is wiped. From the beginning, the descending form of chords that overlap in two lengths, such as keyboard instruments, creates a fantastic atmosphere.
