CLASSICAL OPUS no.24

Toshiro Mayuzumi: “Nirvana Symphony”

黛敏郎 – 「ニルヴァーナ交響曲」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 37 minutes

These disquieting, razor-sharp and flamelike mantras roast uncomfortably in claustrophobic caverns. The composer exposes the vestiges of his country’s heterophonic tradition with precise interplay between the basic structure and simultaneous ornamentation.  For the brave only.

A REFLECTION

As autumn mountains

Tinged with scarlet were you, maiden,

A pliable bamboo,

Supply bending, lady,

Of what

Were you thinking?

 

Man’yoshu (by Kakinomoto no Hitomaro): Waka “mys ii: 217”
