Walk (1976)

Jo Kondo

flute, and piano

Commission: Michio Kai

Program Notes

One of the peculiarities of this piece is its quick timbral shifting in a syncopated rhythm between the two instruments. This might evoke the relaxed, but somehow tangled, steps of my (or your) walking.

Walk was written in 1976 under a commissioned from the Japanese flutist Michio Kai, who premiered it with Aki Takahashi in the same year in Tokyo.
