Les trois notes du Japon

Grade : 6
Duration : 18:00

I. La danse des grues (Tancho cranes' mating dance)
II. La riviere enneigee (Snowy river))
III. Le fete du feu (Nebuta festival))

This spectacular suite, written for the Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, offers three visions of Japanese environment and life that, while Eastern in motivation, are resoundingly modern wind orchestra in style. Brilliant flourishes of the Tancho cranes mating dance, pensive scenes of winter, and the forceful urgency of the Nebuta festival's taiko drumbeats are backdrops to this lush and demanding display of technique and emotion.
