Composer Haruyuki Suzuki’s works have taken multiple directions, making it hard to grasp a comprehensive picture of his oeuvre by listening to one piece. With that in mind we will present two works each from chamber music composed by Suzuki over the last twenty years and which exemplify four different directions: his Repetitive series, Punctuation series, Narrative music series and Telescopic series. This selection will give audiences a comprehensive overview of Suzuki’s work.
“Is This C’s Song?”
CIRCUIT was established to revitalize the music world by presenting Haruyuki Suzuki’s works to audiences both at home and abroad, but the aim going forward is to broaden awareness of other outstanding and exciting contemporary music in addition to works by Suzuki.
