By request from Hasse Junior High School Wind Orchestra I initially arranged the 4th movement, Feria, which premiered at the All Japan Band Contest national finals under the direction of Kazuhiko Tsuchiya. I intended to complete the other three movements by fall of that year. Following a delay in the work's completion, Mr. Tsuchiya was transferred to another school. Now, each time I listen to the dynamic sound of Hasse JHS Wind Orchestra I regret losing the opportunity to have them perform the entire arrangement and observe the synergy between that wonderful band and conductor.

As Rapsodie was commissioned by a junior high band, one might think that I made musical and technical allowances in the score. The director advised me to "set the ideal orchestration and we will resolve difficulties in time" so I arranged it without regard to grade level. Any notes additional to the original score are not for compensation, but rather are “tricks” for adapting Rapsodie Espagnole to the wind band. Recognizing and exploiting such enhancements is essential to its preparation. Similarly, since both impressionism and realism reside in Rapsodie Espagnole, take full advantage of changes in orchestration and color to follow the sentimental flow of the score.
