About Miko Dance

inspired by the movements of the traditional dance of a Miko

This piece is inspired by the slow and gentle movements of the traditional dance of a Miko (maiden integrated into the religious ritual of the Japanese Shinto-Shrine). This is a highly stylized dance, especially when compared to those of occidental cultures.

The solo horn inserts "cadential" phrases within the context of a formal musical structure in which the sound and expression resources of todays instruments are beautifully exploited on an richly colored orchestral accompaniment.
