Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The title of the work, “Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan,” is borrowed from the book of the same title
    written by Lafcadio Hearn (Japanese name: 小泉八雲 Koizumi Yakumo) and published in the U.S. in
    1894. Although Japanese cartoons, animations, computer games and sushi are widely known, people in
    other countries are still unfamiliar with many things in Japan. There may be something Japanese that
    holds a certain attraction for those people. I hope that a glimpse into an unfamiliar Japan may spark a
    new fascination with Japan.
