‘Mirage’ for viola and piano (2002)

Novels are not dissertations. They should be structures consisting of dreams, delusions and speculations in all its aspects. If there would be remains of unsuccessful descriptions which chill readers as “How ridiculous!”, that’s that.—

This is a quotation from the late Mr. Yutaka Haniya, who was the author of unfinished spectacular Death Spirits (Shirei). And also these words coincide with my conception of composition. Composition is, all things considered, a musical trick. It must be fun with musical spirits.

What mirage could be born of veiled tones of a viola encountering with brilliant tones of a piano like a keyboard percussion?
