“31 minutes of the most exquisite meditative quiet you have ever heard in a concert hall.” - Chicago Tribune
Commissioned by Carnegie Hall to celebrate its centennial in 1990, Takemitsu drew inspiration for this sublime piece from “Clear Blue Water” by Japanese poet Makoto Ooka. The music is both visually and sonically stunning, evoking the power of five forces of nature: water, fire, earth, wind, and sky.
Third Coast Percussion will perform this monumental concerto with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Ken-David Masur. This performance will celebrate the opening of Bradley Symphony Center, the MSO's new permanent home.
