Ryo Noda's Requiem

Author: Not Found

I've been working on the technical aspects of Noda's Requiem (shin-en) for a month now, but have been unable to find any information related to the inspiration or story behind the piece. I've exhausted the sources I have available and am wondering if anyone has researched the piece or has information concerning its background. Thanks in advance, Casey Emerson

Casey, Sorry, I rarely visit the discussion board. Below is info that John Sampen gleaned from an interview with Noda. Hope it helps. Joe website Requim (Shin-en) Center or Flame of the heart. Someone dies but also someone is born between first and last note. Date and time should be spoken at ending to say goodbye to the dead and hello to the newborn. (dedicated to Japanese composer Irino Yoshiro)

It should also be noted that much of Noda's music is written to emulate the Shakuhachi flutes. It would help to do a bit of research on the history of this instrument as well to sort of broaden the interpretive side of Noda's music.
