The Japanese-German piano duo Takahashi/Lehmann performs my piano piece “Omoigakezu – Oh You Suddenly!”. The piece once again features my favorite theme, the “dance from Awa”. The theme consists of three notes. While writing this piano piece the theme suddenly popped into my head. For weeks I was humming the three notes in the Awa rhythm, and ended up composing a very different piece than I had originally planned. By the way, the Takahashi/Lehmann PianoDuo has actually been to the Awa region in Japan and witnessed the dance there. They really perform with full, dancing passion.
