"Tokyo Rain" commemorates in its brief span a memory. In the aftermath of the awful nuclear/tsunami catastrophe which hit Japan in 2011, the Seoul Philharmonic and Maestro Myung Whun Chung quickly organised a tour of three Japanese cities. It would be entirely voluntary for the musicians: numerous orchestras had canceled their tours fearing for the safety of their members. Happily, nearly the entire orchestra agreed to take part in the tour and we added several Japanese musicians from top orchestras who wished to add their voice. As the orchestra bus arrived at the hotel in Tokyo, a gentle rain began to fall. With talk of radioactive rain, I could see the concern several of our musicians felt. First off the bus, I opened my umbrella: at that moment, one of our cellists, a long time and well respected musician, took my arm to walk with me, signaling to all that it was going to be ok. There were many unforgettable moments, musical and otherwise, but the memory of the rain stayed with me. The result is this little zen-like souvenir, with cello pizzicato reminders of the rain. At the premiere in Havana, it began to rain, audible through the open doors of the San Felipe Neri Oratory. Perfect!
