091b-Four Haikús (boys choir version)
|City and date||
|Premiere (original version)||
-The fallen flower
-Path that finishes
The show was directed by Ferran Frauca, and the performers were: Ferran Frauca himself as rapsoda and singer, Titon Frauca as singer and rapsoda, and a servant as interpreter of psalter, singer and rapsoda.
I made the four compositions about classical Japanese poems called Haikus, poetic style I discovered at that time and which I have used in many occasions, as now in the show Lake or in the song Midday's Haikus.
The Haikus consist of small poems of very few verses that portray in a subtle and sensitive way moments of poetic contemplation towards nature.
The four Haikus correspond to the following Japanese poets: For "The fallen flower" Moritake, known as Arakida Moritake, Japanese poet of the late fifteenth century, for "Path that finishes" Buson, or known as Yosa Buson or Taniguchi Buson, Japanese poet of the late eighteenth century, for "White camellias" Ranko, Japanese poet of the early eighteenth century, and last for "Little child" Seifu-jo, known as Enomoto Seifu Jo, Japanese poet of the early eighteenth century.
Work included in the show Imaginary Journeys (1999)
