Program Notes

The original is a piece for brass band. It was composed in 1982 by a commission of the All Japan Band Federation. It became one of the songs for the All Japan Brass Band Competition in 1983. Nearly 40 years ago, I was in my mid-20s then. For me, it's an important work that started my career as a composer.

The song name is the name of a dance that is said to have occurred in France in the 18th century. I envisioned it as an elegant dance style music, and the name was prefixed with quadri- which means “4” because four couples dance in a square and the name is the motive of jumping four times. Although I thought it was suitable for this work that started by, there is no particular deep relation to the stylistic aspect of music.

Initially, it does not show off its power or aims at a gorgeous performance effect, so it is a work suitable for a small number of people. However, in this arrangement for a flexible ensemble, it is possible to play with five parts and percussion instruments, so there are some parts where chords are originally assembled in parts where 7 or 9 chords are originally used. In addition, creating the color of the sound and changing the color are important points of the expression. To do this, first sense the color, and then feel the change in the volume of each part. It will be a musical task to express it by timbre balance. In the case of a group with a sufficient number of people, it would be interesting to assign a player with multiple parts and move their roles to create changes in balance and color.
