The commissioner, Trouvère Quartet has been acquainted with me for a long time, and there are many compositions and arrangements for the quartet and solos for the members. The first song I wrote for Trouvère is Moashibi.
I didn't know the extent of Trouvère's ability at that time. So the piece is not too demanding for the players.
The title "Moashibi" - Okinawa's custom of playing, singing, and dancing on the beach at night ? comes from the request to feature an Okinawan melody.
