Program Notes

The original song is a flute quartet. Termini, composed in 2010 for a commission of the flute ensemble group Fiore.

Termini means the central station which can be called the gateway of Rome, and it seems that it was named because it is close to the ruins of Terme of Emperor Diocletian of the Roman Empire. Also, "termini" is an Italian word that means the end point, but the name has nothing to do with the Italian end point, and it is said that the name of this land near the bathhouse was given. This ensemble song was reorganized into a wind song for a small number of people as A Scene of Rome.

As you can see from the title of the original song, it does not describe the whole of Rome, but it is an essay-like work that depicts the impression that I felt while walking around Termini station like a "postcard of a trip". I hope that this song will make the younger generation more interested in the history, culture, and culture of Italy as the world becomes more and more international.
