This is a suite of three short pieces. Be supportive of nurtured lives, to have a fruitful life... the title is a depiction of this "Harvest".

This work is drawn from the soundtrack of the Akita Broadcast production "Saito Kenzo Monogatari - Men with two wins and 98 losses". For each song, 1. Youth 2. Hometown 3. Minori were attached as subtitles.

For performance, the story does not matter too much. What is more important is to express the melody's simple feeling and the transparency of the accompaniment. Although it is a small ensemble, three-dimensional (meaning "with depth") sound should be expressed.

Commissioned in 2009 by Nishinomiya Junior High School Band.
