Fragments of Kumiko - Flute, Clarinet, Piano with String Quartet (PDF)

35.00

Commissioned by the Beijing Modern Music Festival 2015. In Haruki Murakami's book, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, the main character loses track of his wife, Kumiko, who goes missing in the endless Tokyo urban sprawl. This piece explores the concept of human memory: at first things are clear, but the memories of a loved one can fade and become distorted over time. Optional video accompaniment by Stephen Earnhart, who directed the multi-media stage play Wind-Up Bird Chronicle in New York City. Please contact the composer if video is desired.

Performance time: 9:30

Instrumentation: Flute/Alto Flute, Clarinet, Piano, and String Quartet
