Toshio Hosokawa on his career and the images in his music (10 min.)

In a highly individual manner, the Hiroshima born Toshio Hosokawa seeks to revitalize traditional forms of composition. Moment of Blossoming is the title of his horn concerto – a tribute to the mythically revered lotus flower of Hosokawa’s homeland. The work is a musical portrayal of the lotus blossoming in a lake.
