My letter to the world [orchestral version]

Fujikura, D. (2016) My letter to the world [orchestral version]. [Composition]


Song cycle for solo baritone and orchestra, duration 12 minutes. This piece was premiered on 24 July 2015 by Simon Bailey (baritone) and the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Martyn Brabbins. "This is the orchestral version of a piece which was originally written for baritone and piano. This piece consists of six songs, all created using a completely different composing method, as if there were six different worlds folded into one. I recorded my friend reciting the text of some of the songs. I then analysed the tiny inflections of the voice reading out the text. Expanding the intervals of the speech pattern, I created the melody for the baritone. By contrast, some songs are composed completely freely." - Dai Fujikura, liner notes from "my letter to the world," New Focus Recordings (2016)
