About

This work was originally composed as a set of five pieces, and later revised as the present set of three. The middle piece is an arrangement of the well known Japanese folk song 'Sakura, Sakura', while the outer pieces feature variations of melodic phrases heard at different registers. The original set of five pieces was performed by Ross Carey at Victoria University of Wellington in March 1996. The revised set of pieces was first performed by Yuji Takahashi in his concert of 20th Century piano music in the series "100 Pianists of the Century" in Omiya, Saitama in February 1999. This performance was later released on the CD piano, volume 9 of Yuji's "Real Time" series, on the FONTEC label (FOCD 3452).
