Lotus under the Moonlight

Lotus under the Moonlight

Hommage à Mozart

for piano and orchestra


  • Instrumentation: piano and orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
In commemoration of Mozart Year, 2006, I selected his Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major K. 488, which has been among of my favorites of European music since childhood. As I composed this concerto, I imagined a lotus flower still in its budding stage on a quiet moonlit night, in the moment of its blossoming. This dream is a humble expression of my admiration for Mozart’s music (and for Western music). Toshio Hosokawa
