Notes

  • Program notes: 

    There is a time for everything. As autumn approaches and summer fades, some leaves remain emerald, some turn golden yellow and orange-red, and some wilt and fall onto the ground. Brushes of freshness, of peace and of chill mingle in the bush of leaves of similar and yet different shapes. They dance with the wind, but to dust they will all return.

    In the piece, recurring motives of similar shapes shaded with subtle timbral changes depict the changing autumn leaves, while references to the writing of traditional Japanese Shakuhachi music, Chinese Dizi music and flute music give the music different verves.
