Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This piece was composed first in 2011 for a non-professional Orchestra in Fukushima,
    and performed on January 2012 in Fukushima-City. The composer who lived in Fukushima at the Great East Japan Earthquake, who is living in Fukushima after that, wanted to remain his most strong thought he conceived for the catastrophe and the fear of the radioactivity in anyway. Five years passed after that, and we are getting back the ordinal and usual life but I believe we should not forget all what happened and thought at that time. I, as composer, should express with music as his obligation. This is one and most of the reasons why I composed this piece. For the new version in 2015, the piece is totally rewritten to a chamber ensemble music.
