Commissioned by Kyo-En Executive Committee. Premiered at Kyo-En V in 2003, Kawagoe Sohwa Wind Ensemble, Masato Sato, conductor.
I know the conductor and band inside out, so I enjoyed composing this work very much, thinking about their personalities. The piece features the sax section, and the performance style is characterized by interplay between a vibrant jazz quartet and a solid pops windensemble.
Now that the work is published, I hope you add it to your concert repertoire. (Masamicz Amano)
