  • Yasushi Akutagawa - Rhapsody

    14:57

    Rapsodia per orchestra (1971)

    An orchestral work by Japanese composer Yasushi Akutagawa (1925-1989), the youngest son of the renowned writer Ryunosuke Akutagawa. Yasushi Akutagawa studied composition with Qunihico Hashimoto, who was in turn a student of Egon Wellesz, Midori Hosokawa, who trained with Franz Schmidt in Vienna, and later with Akira Ifukube. Akutagawa's own musical style drew on both the lyricism of Hashimoto and the almost primitivist dynamism of Ifukube. In 1971, the Bunka-cho (Agency for Cultural Affairs) commissioned the Rhapsody. It is scored for strings, triple or quadruple wind and a large percussion section. Akutagawa described this piece as a vision of a sorcerer waving a short wand.

    II. Ninnerella (5:00)
    III. Finale (15:37)

    Yasushi Akutagawa was one of Japan’s most prominent composers during post war years. He was equally host to TV programs and wrote musicological books. While his first style is approachable and easy to grasp, his second period was more musically complex and demanding. In 1948, he wrote the Trinità Sinfonica, a symphonically constituted triptych or Trinity. Using an easygoing style borrowed from Sino-Soviet Socialist Realism, he builds a singular symphonic language that mixes his own Japanese sensitivity with influences from Kabalevsky, Shostakovich and even Joaquín Rodrigo.

    Yasushi Akutagawa fue uno de los compositores más importantes de la posguerra en Japón. Aparte, fue conductor de varios programas de TV y escribió libros musicológicos. Mientras que su primer estilo es comprensible y fácil de interpretar, su segundo periodo es musicalmente más complejo y demandante. En 1948, escribió la Trintà Sinfonica, un tríptico o trinidad sinfónicamente construida. Usando un lenguaje accesible, propio al Realismo Socialista Sino-soviético, construye un singular idioma sinfónico que mezcla su niponismo con influencias de Kabalevsky, Shostakovich e incluso de Joaquín Rodrigo.

    Tetsuji Honna, Japan philharmonic orchestra

    1. Prelude (前奏曲) [0:10]

    2. Heaven in the morning (極楽の朝) [1:57]
    - 或日の事でございます。御釈迦様は極楽の蓮池のふちを、独りでぶらぶら御歩きになっていらっしゃいました。池の中に咲いてゐる蓮の花は、みんな玉のように真っ白で、そのまん中にある金の蕊からは、何とも云へない好い匂が、絶間なくあたりへ溢れて居ります。

    3. The spider and Kandhata (蜘蛛と犍陀多)
    - [4:32] やがて御釈迦様はその池のふちに御佇みになって、水の面を蔽っている蓮の葉の間から、ふと下の様子を御覧になりました。...するとその地獄の底に、犍陀多という男が一人、外の罪人と一しょに蠢いている姿が御眼にとまりました。
    - [5:27] 或る時この男が深い林の中を通りますと、小さな蜘蛛が一匹、路ばたを這って行くのが見えました。
    - [6:00] そこで犍陀多は早速足を挙げて、踏み殺さうと致しましたが...急に思い返して、とうとうその蜘蛛を殺さずに助けてやったからでございます。
    - [6:52] 幸、側を見ますと、翡翠のやうな色をした蓮の葉の上に、極楽の蜘蛛が一匹、美しい銀色の糸をかけて居ります。
    - [7:20] 御釈迦様はその蜘蛛の糸をそっと御手に御取りになって、遥かな地獄の底へ、まっすぐ御下ろしになりました。

    4. Bloodbath in Hell (血の地獄) [7:45]
    - こちらは地獄の底の血の池で、外の罪人と一しょに、浮いたり沈んだりしてゐた犍陀多でございます。

    5. The Spider's Thread (蜘蛛の糸)
    - [9:48] 何気なく犍陀多が頭を挙げて、血の空の色を眺めますと、そのひっそりとした暗の中を、遠い遠い天上から、銀糸の蜘蛛の糸が、まるで人目にかかるのを恐れるように、一すじ細く光りながら、するすると自分の上へ垂れてまいるのではございませんか。
    - [10:49] 犍陀多は早速その蜘蛛の糸を両手でしっかりとつかみながら、一生懸命に上へ上へとたぐりのぼり始めました。
    - [11:48] さっきまで自分がゐた血の池は、今ではもう暗の底に何時の間にかかくれて居ります。それからあのぼんやり光ってゐる恐ろしい針の山も、足の下になってしまいました。
    - [12:17] 所がふと気が付きますと、蜘蛛の糸の下の方には、数限りもない罪人たちが、まるで蟻の行列のやうに、やはり上へ上へ一心によじのぼって来るではございませんか。
    - [12:34] そこで犍陀多は大きな声を出して「この蜘蛛の糸は己のものだぞ。下りろ。下りろ」と喚きました。その途端でございます。今まで何ともなかった蜘蛛の糸が、急に犍陀多のぶら下がっている所から、ぷつりと音を立てて断たれました。

    6. Heaven at noon (極楽の昼) [13:14]
    - 御釈迦様は極楽の蓮池のふちに立って、この一部始終をぢっと見ていらっしゃいましたが、やがて犍陀多が血の池の底へ石のやうに沈んでしまいますと、悲しそうな御顔をなさりながら、又ぶらぶらと御歩きになり始めました。しかし極楽の蓮池の蓮は、少しもそんな事には頓着致しません。金の蕊からは、何ともいへない好い匂が、絶間なくあたりへ溢れて居ります。

    Yasushi Akutagawa(1925-1989) is one of the greatest Japanese composer in the post-war era. The son of the great writer, Ryunosuke Akutagawa, he is one of the leader of the culture in Japanese.
    He was greatly influensed by the music of Soviet. In 1955, he went to USSR and met the great musicians, such as Shostakovich, Kabalevsky, Khrennnikov, and Kabalesky, whose house he stayed for the several days.

    This La Danse consists of two dance and an intermezzo. in the school days and this work is his first Opus which remains today.
    No.1 is the bit-fast march. the main ethnic theme is used repeatedly.

    Intermezzo is Prestissimo, perpetuum mobile of basso ostinato. It evokes the machine, especially the trackter, the symbol of the mortanizaion and civilization of USSR.
    No.2, the longest, is the slower than No.1. It evokes me of the motif of the northern Japan, next to Sibelia. It is obvious he was influenced by the music of Akira Ifukube(1914-2006), shows barbalism and ethnitism.

    Unforthnately, he seldom composed the work for piano.
