Programme Note:
These seven miniatures are based on seven poems from the famous mediaeval Japanese anthology Hyakunin Isshu (One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each). Each of these poems – chosen from among my favourites and the favourites of the pieces’ dedicatee, Hiroshi Iwamoto – were analysed numerologically, and arranged in quasi-serial matrices that became the harmonic bases of the pieces. The overarching title, mountain / cherry / blossoms, comes from poem 66 (the seventh and final piece), though the three characters straddle a semantic break, leading to the slashes in the English title. Most of the poems include images of either mountains, cherries, or flowers. Ageing, loneliness, and love are the main themes of these seven short pieces.

Premiere Information:
14 September 2013, Ryogkoku Monten Hall, Tokyo, Japan. Satoko Inoue, piano.
