Yoshihisa (in memoriam) composed by Bruno Giner.

Digital sheet music for marimba solo to download.

“I met Yoshihisa Taïra in November 1996 during the creation of my Images de peaux at a festival where his work for six percussionists Hierophonie V was also performed.

The “shock” was intense and reciprocal. Afterwards, we shared several moments of a rare quality. I love his music and he loved mine. Few words of course. Many laughing silences enamelled with complicit smiles.

Yoshihisa (in memoriam), for marimba 5 octaves, is (we will have understood it) a tribute to Yoshihisa Taïra, free imaginary and speculative drift based on a few notes of his “big sister” Convergence.

The piece, in one piece, is divided into 6 sections: Introduction The first name of Taïra The music of Taïra The tomb of Taïra Improvisation for Taïra Coda (ritual.

This work is dedicated to its instigator and creator Fabrice Marandola. I started writing it on Friday, March 13, 2009 (four years to the day after Yoshihisa Taïra’s death) and finished it on June 3, 2009, the day of his birthday (he would have been 72 years old)”. Bruno Giner
