The first piece of Kevin’s space trilogy which was originally written for the Poynton Youth Band. This piece is a great opener with its strong drum rhythm at the beginning and its flowing melody throughout.
Takeda no Komoriuta (Lullaby of Takeda) is s beautiful Japanese folk song which tells the story of a young girl. The girl was forced to leave her family and village to go to work for a rich family on the other side of a mountain. As the girl worked carrying a baby on her back she thought about her family. Missing them she sang this song to comfort herself.
Playable by any standard of band this has proved to be very popular with audiences.
A beautiful melody written in the style of a Celtic folk song.
A great addition to your concert programme.
