Programme Notes / Performance Details :


Yasuo Sueyoshi composed this work for Keiko Abe, who premiered it in 1971. Sueyoshi said, Keiko Abe had a reputation among composers that she could play anything.
This meant composers wrote whatever they felt, concentrating more on sounds a
nd images and less on making the piece fit smoothly for the performer. As a result, Mirage is a difficult piece, both technically and musically. His music draws influence from Japanese literature written by Japanese poet Chuya Nakahara. While Mr. Sueyoshi was composing Mirage, he had a pair of Indian-style bells on his desk, which he sounded in order to catch the overtones. Mirage is full of colors, dynamics, and coherent motives throughout.

Movements in sections with frequently varying tempos within each section. Number of beats per measure indicated by a number just above the bar line, as far as possible indications. Atonal and difficult.
