You, Lonely Japanese Woman

Composed at the request of the Belgian pianist Jean-Noël Remiche who premiered it at the Ars Musica Festival, on November 15th 2016.

The piece is inspired by few Japanese haikus which gave some expressive directions in its different sections.

  • «  Ah ! Shelter where Mermen and
    Undines are making love
    Summer Moon »
  • «  Autumn evening
    There is also Happiness
    In Loneliness »
  • « At the very heart of the Winter
    Thrifty Monks and priesters
    Are relaxing in the old Garden »

Yosa Buson
