Commissioned by Hachinohe Choja Junior High School. This is a "Suite", but you can focus on the image of each scene while freely expressing each movement.

There are many instances where motifs are passed from part to part. In those situations, take care to show that you understand who previously played those motives and what type of sound was used perform them.

The suggested tempi are explained in detail but consider them more as a reference. Without too much attention to metronome markings, perform more by the nuance of the descriptions, for example, the relative differences between Adagio and Lento, and Vivo and Allegro, etc.
