Conozco y toco la música de Akira Nishimura desde hace muchos años y he trabajado muchas de sus piezas con mis alumnos. Todas ellas muy bien escritas para el piano.

“Mirror of Stars” es una obra atípica en su producción pianística. Su escritura suele ser luminosa, brillante, impetuosa, pero esta pequeña pieza es un oasis de ternura y delicadeza salpicada por esporádicos arrebatos apenas insinuados. Un manto de cuerdas vibrantes en el registro grave llena de sonoridades cavernosas cada evento de la pieza. Akira Nishimura escribe: “El efecto de eco producido por el pedal tonal pretende proporcionar a cada nota de la melodía la resonancia de una onda. Hay estrellas centelleantes con espejos flotando en el espacio oscuro como el profundo océano”

I know and play the music of Akira Nishimura for many years now and have worked on many of his pieces with my students. All of them are very well written for the piano.

“Mirror of Stars” is an atypical work on his piano output. His writing is often bright, brilliant, impetuous, but this little piece is an oasis of tenderness and delicacy interrupted by isolated outbursts. A cover of vibrating strings in the low register gives a cavernous  sound to each event of the piece. Akira Nishimura writes: “The echo effect produced by the sostenuto pedal is intended to give every tone of the melody resonance like that of a ripple. There are twinkling stars with mirrors on them floating in the sky like the dark and deep sea”
