This arrangement was specifically written for publication and recording in 2008.
There have been countless interpretations, both positive and negative, of “My Neighbor Totoro”. However, I was simply moved by this film’s portrait of family love, respect for the environment, exciting adventure of childhood, and people’s loving kindness. It touched my heart with its abundant colorful images.
To reflect its simplicity and unsophisticated character, this version is by no means an “elaborate” arrangement. With the tune from The Path of Wind as the introduction, this work is a medley of familiar tunes of the following scenes:
2. The Village in May,
3. Traveling Soot,
4. The Path of Wind,
6. My Neighbor Totoro
