Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I composed it using five songs from Manyoshu tanka collection which was the Japanese oldest songbook this time. I chose them which make me image the scene at that time when they were written. Each song has personality, and each piece composes "pure white".
    Each piece is not the same. Although this is the modern work, the melody from the strain and balance which were born from five songs reflect the scene at that time.
