Miho Sasaki about her piano piece „SANSHISUIMEI“ :
„SANSHISUIMEI means scenic beauty in Japanese. 山(san):mountain,紫(shi): purple, 水(sui):water, 明(mei):shining.
Beethoven’s music, for me, always reminds me the country of his home. It smells earthy and grounded with profound emotion within. This piece is very much inspired by some of his recurring musical characteristics: powerful and supportive low register again, by contrast, high registers: constant challenges, searching for his soul, longing for peace, climbing the ladder but always falls off right before achieving, always returning to the earth, the reality.
Also I embraced Beethoven’s late music where he explores unusual rhythms, harmonies and almost improvisation, release of rhythmic structures creating a „no barline“ anticipation of 20th Century“.
