About this Work
(transl. Kei Ishii)
This work was written to commemorate the late composer Yoshiro Irino, who had introduced the 12-tone music to Japan.
In the entire piece, the feeling of "condolence" is expressed by both the overtones which arise from the bass octave sounds and the continuous arpeggio sounds. Then, in the middle part, all of a sudden, the dodecaphonic tone-row (série) from Irino's masterpiece "Sinfonietta for Orchestra" starts to unfold.
