In hardly any other culture have the contrasts between East and West, between tradition and modernism been fought as intensively as in Japan. Hardly any other culture has been more radical in breaking with the own roots after centuries of self-imposed isolation, in adapting to foreign customs, than the home country of the composer Toshio Hosokawa, who was born in Hiroshima in 1955 and who says about his own work: “As a composer, I wish to express something that we have already lost.”

For Zen monks, nature is an expression of the all-embracing Buddha nature which is, in essence, shapeless and inexpressible, yet which can, paradoxically, manifest itself only in visible forms. In the works “Silent Flowers” and “Blossoming” for string quartet, “Lotusblume” for mixed choir and “Lotus under the moonlight” for and orchestra, Hosokawa pays tribute to the withering beauty of the blooming flower which maintains its magnificence only for a short time. The special instrumentation of the quartet “Stunden-Blumen” with clarinet, violin, violon and takes up the example of Olivier Messiaens “Quatuor pour la fin du temps” [Quartet for the end of time] – re-interpreted by Hosokawa as a “quartet for the origin of time”.

The instrumentations of “Landscape I-VI” range from string quartet to chamber ensemble to violin concerto. Characteristic of the ten-part “Voyages” is the relationship between solo and accompaniment: The soloist stands for the individual, the ensemble for nature and the universe. The journey undertaken by the soloist is both a journey to himself, to his inner self, and to the heart of the sound. Both “Voyages” contained on this CD were written for the ensemble Musikfabrik.

The duo for flute and was simply entitled “Lied” by Hosokawa; in this piece, the challenge for the composer and the players probably is to generate the tonal idiom of traditional Japanese instruments by using mainly European instruments. Like in “Voyages”, the part of the flute is an expression of the individual while the accompanying symbolizes the universe.
