Konohana (Konohanasakuya-hime) is the goddess of Mount Fuji and the princess of cherry blossoms. She is associated with the sakura and the ephemeral beauty of its blooming. This piece is inspired by the symbolism of the cherry blossom as well as the socio-cultural aspect of the blooming flowers.
From the clarinet, contrapuntal lines emerge and progressively densify the instrumental texture like rhizomes. This densification is interrupted by the presence of “inserts”, ephemeral blocks of material radically different and interconnected to each other. The clarinet takes advantage of these moments to increasingly gain power. From a subtoned sound to a full sonority, the clarinet distances itself from the rest of the ensemble that tries to fulfill the function of demiurge during these inserts.
