I will report back when I have started learning the piece. I played a lot of Brouwer the last few years, somehow his music fits my way of hima. Any thoughts of the Delcamp bika on this piece? This is a challenging piece, not necessarily because of the quick passages many of these are aided by the scordaturabut because of the difficulty of maintaining the appropriate feel throughout the various transitions.
Another important thing to consider is that “Hika” is a lament in Japanese musical tradition from what I understand and so this piece in memory of Brouwer’s good friend, Toru Takemitsu, is really a sort of mournful elegy in his memory.
I particularly endorse David Belcher’s point about the transitions. I don’t have the score in front of me right now, but can revert with more detail later if needed.
