Yukidoke Shizuku – The Sound of Melting Snow

ゆき解しずく Yukidoke Shizuku  (The Sound of Melting Snow) – Shingo Edo (2000)

This piece was composed for a koto duet and depicts the scene of the thaw season – a resonant sound of snow melting in the crisp cool air.  The harmony of the two kotos expresses the arrival of spring.  I hope my rendition of the piece conveys the sense of spring’s beginning and the joy of new life.
