Notes on this piece
Tajimamori [ 田道間守 ] (2017) is a work for violin, cello and piano. It is inspired by the legend of the Emperor Suinin narrated in the Nihon Shoki (Chronicles of Japan). The story tells that the emperor entrusts a mission to Tajimamori which consisted in a journey towards the "Eternal Country of Life" in search of the "Tree of Eternal Fragance" to obtain immortality. The locartion of this place was unknown, reason why Tajimamori has numerous conflicts in his adventure. After ten years, he finds the tree, but upon returning the emperor was already deceased. The traveler gives half of the fruit of eternal life to the empress and the other was deposited in the tomb of Suinin. Finally, Tajimamori dies of sadness and agony.
The work begins with a single note that is succeeded by the strings and attacked again by the piano. This material represents the traveler. Throughout the piece, this element is extended towards the treble and towards the bass and it presents differents types of variations. At the beggining, a consonant sound is gradually transformed into a more unstable spectrum of virtuous gesturality. In the middle part of the piece a point of total saturation is reached by the superposition and multiplication of events (climax that represents the difficulties of the adventure). Subsequently, there is a calderon of 6’’ (measure 92) that symbolizes the return of Tajimamori to the empire. Then, a piano solo dialogues with the strings that express the agony and sadness of the protagonist in the legend. Finally, there is a return to the repeated note of the beginning but it is interrupted by the glissandi of the piano. The final clusters represent the Tajimamori’s death.
