COMMENTS Marimba Concerto
Commissioned by Japan°«s leading marimba player Ryo Takada

Marimba Concerto was composed in December 2008, commissioned by Japan°«s leading marimba player Ryo Takada. The first movement contains elements of baroque and classical styles, which is unusual in today°«s wind music. The second movement, graceful in mood, captures the composer°«s characteristic chorale style. The third movement turns into a rapid and exciting conclusion. The whole piece is played, without interruption, as a single movement. Although this great work exceeds ten minutes, the music has vitality and holds the listeners°« attention. The work can be considered as a sequel in a series of other concerti by Satoshi Yagisawa; Suite Concertante for Piano and Wind Orchestra, Trumpet Concerto and Trombone Concerto. The first performance with Ryo Takada as soloist was conducted by Yutaka Kato and performed by Bunkyo University Shonan Campus Wind Orchestra, Kawasaki City Tachibana High School Wind Band, and Kawasaki City Takatsu High School Wind Band, in December 2008.
