Programme Note:
"Minyo" consists of five short movements, which are largely influenced by Japanese folk music. Elements of folk music can be heard directly in the variations of pitch and rhythm. Strings also imitate the sounds of the traditional instruments commonly used in folk music: shamisen (guitar), koto (harp), taiko (drum), and voice. These seemingly contrasting movements are interconnected by the reoccurrence of these four components.
