Toru Takemitsu
Seasons (for percussion and tape) +
Seasons illustrates the natural gentle variation of the seasons in Japan, a change can feel but one which is so subtle it is invisible to the human eye. It is expressed in this piece by the different tones of the musical instruments and in the way the initial delicate variation suddenly gives way to a succession of contrasting sounds, until the cycle is complete.

The first performance was given by Michael Ranta and Yasunori Yamaguchi in August 1970. It was then revised and interpreted by Stomu Yamashia in Paris at the Journées de Musique Contemporaine in 1971.
