Here's this week's piece.
The Bell / Mizuki Aita [Percussion Quintet]
Instrumentation (Parts included in the set)：
4. Percussion 1(4TomToms,S.Cym)
5. Percussion 2(Bell,4TomToms,S.Cym)
Commissioned work for Shiogama-City Third Junior High School Wind Orchestra, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. The piece is a freely conceived variation on the rhythm of the Hatse-bushi, a folk song from Shiogama. The "Bell," which was discovered during a visit to the Third Junior High School, was positioned as an important musical instrument. I composed this piece with the hope that the "bell of encounter" will ring out over the sea and open up new prospects for the future, in a life of repeated encounters and partings. Dedicated to Shiogama-City Third Junior High School Wind Orchestra. (Mizuki Aita)
We look forward to receiving your order!
