Program Notes

Wind and Sky from the Hometown was composed in 2008 as a commission from Sai Junior High School, Aomori. The band had only eleven members at the time. Although more parts were added for publication, the piece can basically be performed by eleven players.

I composed and titled the piece based on my imaginary scene: Even after the eleven friends have grown up and become adults, under the beautiful sky of the Tsugaru Strait, their dreams and hopes become the wind and they can meet again.
