The passing of summer may bring a feeling of transient evanescence, or emptiness. This feeling is connected to the Japanese “sense of the vanity of life”.
This composition captures the awareness of season that resonates with the people of Japan, who possess a keen sense of seasonal change inherited from their ancestors. Sustained notes and harmony should depict “Mono no Aware “, sadness or pathos.
