Koto Futae

箏双重 Koto Futae – Minoru Miki (1973)

The first movement shows a peaceful scene in which two kotos sing in the beauty of the medieval style, while they become backgrounds by turns. The second movement has the same medieval style, evoking the atmosphere of a Western European church. The third movement changes to a fast and dynamic music, with many alterations. It is intended that the feeling of the entire piece to be simple and clear.
