Vocalise for Soprano and Piano
Commissioned work by Akari Morinami (soprano) and Akane Kidawara (piano). The music consists of three parts. At the first part, designated as "Like talking to the dark sea." This is the theme part where the main melody comes in, and the middle part is the relatively quiet part that comes from the piano solo designated as " Like hearing a voice calling far from the dark sky." In the middle part, tonality becomes slightly ambiguous. Then, the first melody comes back, and the piece finishes vigorously with a little harsh and atonal sounds. This piece has been premiered on February 15, 2020, in Ehime, Japan.
