Depictions of nature is the common theme throughout the concert in which the music of Swedish and Japanese composers come together. From Staffan Storm’s haiku compositions in Aspects of Snow to Toshio Hosokawa’s Schumann-inspired Die Lotosblume and Toru Takemitsu’s Wind Horse, the human voice is used in varying and graphic ways. Likewise, Mika Takehara demonstrates the versatility of the marimba in works by Pär Lindgren and Karen Tanaka, and in Malin Bång’s Shinai kiai, the tension and intensity of Asian martial arts are recreated.
