ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the beginning of 20th century in Japan, there was an important artistic period called TAISHŌ Romanticism. One could say that the works you will listen to in this CD are a harvest of the culture of that period. Poems written for children were called DŌYŌ, and when turned into songs by composers they become part of the children’s world. These songs are also called DŌYŌ.
Especially, Kōsaku YAMADA, modern Japan’s most important composer, left behind many song masterpieces based on the poems of Hakushū KITAHARA and other poets. However, he did not compose any songs on the poems of Misuzu KANEKO. Here, Shigeaki HOSHI presents 13 compositions based on her poems. In the field of Japanese song composition, YAMADA’s principles became the best model for the younger generations.
While the poet’s message is in the poem, undoubtedly, the song is the expression of the composer’s heart. Starting for the poet’s world, fertilised by the composer’s feeling, the song is born. That’s what YAMADA said once in a journal, regarding the work of composing on a poem.
Lastly, the role of the singer is very important. This is specially so for Japanese songs. Most Japanese singers sing them with a western vocal technique, but there is a huge difference between singing in a European language and in Japanese. As you can hear, Yukiko SHIMBO sings in a most exquisite way. Those who wrote these 21 poems must be very happy in heaven! I hope that many people will sing these songs all over the world.
As you can feel, Nicolas VAN NUIJS expresses the Japanese world with beautiful sensitivity. Like in music, there are no frontiers in songs, which bring sympathy and harmony among people.
