For solo piano.
To Toshio Hosokawa, for his 62nd birthday.
Japanese e-mail 3 - To : Toshio Hosokawa
for solo piano (2017 - 6 min.)
Third piece of a cycle of works dedicated to my Japanese friends. Poetic of the oscillation, this little sound message to the composer Toshio Hosokawa tries to answer to a careful listening of the whispers from our moving world. This score is based on letters from the name of this admired friend, dedicatee of the work : H, S (Eb in German), A. Furthermore, many permutations of this anagram will express some mysterious thoughts from twenty-first century.
The work was premiered by Nao Momitani (solo piano) at the occasion of the LAPS concert at the Royal Academy of Belgium on December 7th, 2017. The Japanese premiere took place in September 2018, during the Takefu Festival.
