Evening Haze

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku296 – evening haze

     evening haze:
     when memories come, how distant
     are the by gone days

The haiku was by Takai Kito, a disciple of Yosa Buson. Despite becoming a professional haikai master in 1771, Kito remained one of Buson’s most trusted disciples until the death of the great master, and was the de facto coordinator of Buson’s haikai group.

Imagine taking that last sip of coffee on Mount Mitchell as the sun slowly hides behind a distant peak – as the evening’s haze becomes more aware to you, you understand that the there are no forces that can change the past or hide you from the future.

Evening Haze was written for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Trombone, Cymbals, Gong, Crotales, Vibraphone, Violin, Viola, Cello, and String Bass.
