Japanese E-mail 2 - To : Sachiko Nomura
Second piece of a new cycle for piano dedicated to my friends from Japan or those who are lovers of Japan.
These few pages oscillate between the sentimental and the virtuosity stemming from a complex polyphony of multiple layers of Lamenti at different speed (a new small reference to Gyorgy Ligeti). The piece is based on the proliferation of the first four letters of the name of his dedicatee, a young musician from Tokyo, SACH ; namely, in their English musical translation : Eb, A, C, B (natural).
That Japanese e-mail was the compulsory work for a piano contest held at the Conservatoire Royal de Mons, Arts², June 2015.
