    The Infinite Shining Heavens for Brass Octet
    This is my first work for brass octet. The title comes from my perception of the profound and brilliant sound of brass, like an infinitely spreading sky. The introduction mainly requires intense resonance, and the faster parts in the middle need an animated feel.

While working on the piece, I contacted director Mr. Nobuyuki Kanai numerous times via email. “What musical form do you want?” “What duration?” “What would be a good title?” Mr. Kanai had a specific vision. I was surprised and at the same time impressed with his concept. It was most enjoyable being able... Commissioned by the Naniwa Orchestral Winds, April, 2008. While working on ...
