“CANON ROCK VERSION FOR WEDDING”
[Piano Solo]
Music Score is here

Arranged in November 2008
Playing time: Approx. 5 minutes

This is a piece which an old friend of mine who lives in Hokkaido (Northern part of Japan)
asked me to arrange for a wedding. I was inspired by his comment that CANON and Rock music have a similarity,
 although he didn’t actually know much about classical music. You need to practise hard in order to master
 tempo in the middle part. Please pay attention to fingering and positioning. Have fun and do your best.

Part2. Score here
Arranged in November 2010
Playing time: Approx. 2 minutes 15 seconds. Composed by Hiroshi Miyagawa

This is the theme for a popular Japanese cartoon and has become Japan’s second National anthem. I have tried to arrange this masterpiece as faithfully as possible to keep the atmosphere of the original piece in this four handed version. The piece is not hard to play and suited as an encore at a piano concert. I have arranged a six handed version which is more deluxe with greater scale.

Yancharika
[Four handed piano playing]
Score here

Arrange in December 2010
Playing time: Aproximately: 2 minutes 20 seconds. Composed by Asei Kobayashi

In Japan, Asei Kobayashi is a popular composer of commercial songs with melodies that permeate the lives of most Japanese. The melody of Yncharika is hard to describe but has a sound like a Russian arrangement. Kobayashi is a genius and this masterpiece is most fascinating often to be found being used in back ground music for pre-school gymnastics.

 

Oh holy night
 [Piano solo]
Score here

 Arranged in November 2010
Playing time: Approx. 4 minutes
Composed by Adolphe Charles Adam

The original piece by Adolphe Adam, is an internationally recognised Christmas carol with a beautiful melody. I had previously tried to arrange this for four hands but due to the structure and range of the piece it did not work. I have to say that this arrangement is not really up to my satisfaction.

 

From Northern Country
[Four handed playing for piano]
Score here


  Arranged in October 2010
Playing time: Approx. 9 minutes 30 seconds

This is a medley of songs which were used in a very famous Japanese drama based in Hokkaido (Northern part of Japan). Each song has personality and suites a medley style arrangement. The composition is divided into two parts with an intermezzo, “I Love You”, by Yutaka Ozaki, in between. I like this drama and have a special feeling for it, because I too am from Hokkaido.
 

Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana
 [Interlude]Piano solo
Score here

Arranged in March 2010
Playing time: Approx. 4 minutes 30 seconds. Composed by Pietro Mascagni

The arrangement is quite different to the original work. I have included advanced piano techniques.

Itomaki no uta (Song of the Bobbin)
[Four handed playing for piano with Children and parents]
Score here

Arranged in March 2010
Playing time: Approx. 1 minute 40 seconds.

Originally this is a Danish folk song called “Shoe Makers Dance”. In Japan it is popularly known as “Itomaki no Uta” (Song of the Bobbin). I arranged this piece for a piano teacher and student to play as a four handed piece, making the student part easier. If the student part is still difficult then you can just play the melody. Feel the changes in sound and expression when playing.
 

Air a Danser
「 Air á Danser」 from Penguin Cafe Orchestra [Four handed playing for piano]
Score here

Arranged in February 2010
Playing time: Approx. 4 minutes 20 seconds.

I arranged the piece for the Penguin Café Orchestra as a piano duet. There are some rhythm changes that are not present in the original piece otherwise I have been faithful to the original flow. You will enjoy seeing the busy hand changes of primo and second.
 

Gakeno ueno Ponyo (Ponyo on the Cliff)
[Four handed playing for piano] Ideal for children and parents
Score here

Arranged in February 2010
Playing Time: Approx. 1 minute 30 seconds

This is the theme song of the movie “Gakeno ueno Ponyo”, produced by Studio Ghibli. I’ve arranged this piecehaving an image of a piano class, a duet to be played by children and parents. The part for the parent would be good practice for those whom have not played the piano for long time. It may require lots practice to match each other’s playing.
 

Lupin III
[Four handed playing for piano] Ideal for teachers and students
Score here

Arranged in February 2010
Playing Time: Approx. 1 minute 30 seconds

When I was working on this tune, I was trying to make a duet for a piano school student and a teacher. Some of the teacher's parts are quite difficult and require hard work but I hope the teachers will do their best. It’s very hard to play along together due to the nature of the rhythm.

[Trumpet, Flute, and Piano (six handed)]
Score here

take1
take2
Arranged in January 2010
Playing Time: Approx. 5 minutes 30 seconds

This is a medley of Russian popular songs. I made this song for my friend's wedding, who was in Moscow for study. The medley consists of: Wedding march(Wagner)〜Kalinka〜Kachusya〜Valse des fleurs(Tchaikovsky)〜Symphony No.1(Kalinnikov)〜Piano concerto No.1(Shostakovich)〜Piano concerto No.1(Tchaikovsky)〜Wedding march(Wagner). On the wedding day, we (myself a pianist, some other attendees the flutist and the trumpetter) did this in one-shot without any practice.
 

Happy Birthday to you
[Duet]
Score here
Arranged in December 2009
Playing Time: Approx. 2 minutes 20 seconds

One of my friends requested me to play at a birthday party as a surprise. The tune has been given a cheerful sound based on a cha-cha-cha rhythm. The partner in this song is my friend who used to study piano in Paris. I really enjoyed recording this. Thank you, dear my friend!
 

 Sleigh Ride
[Duet]
Score here
Arranged in November 2009
Playing Time: Approx 3 minutes 40 seconds
Composer: Leroy Anerson

This is a popular tune that almost everyone has heard but the composer is not well-known. Listening to the original music, you’ll notice that it is so close to the perfect that no arrangement is required. Rather than adhering to the original tune, I put in some arrangement with a sense of fun. After the mysterious middle part, the piano duo in the latter part reminds you of the fun of playing as a duet. I worked hard to make this piano duo fun.
 

 Coin de rue
[Duet]
Score here
Arranged in September 2009
Playing Time: Approx 3 minutes 20 seconds
Composer: Charles Trenet

This is a popular song of chanson. I have liked chanson for long time and I have a special feeling from this tune. It is due to thenostalgic melody and the lyrics. A Japanese translation was done by a Japanese chansonnier, the late Ben Kudo. It comes to mind when you hear the very pleasant singing voice. In order to arrange this tune as a duet, I avoided the more skilful parts and tried to make it be pleasant music to play. Please play it lightly and snappily.
 

「Wedding March」by Mendelssohn
[6 handed playing for piano] & [Duet]
Score here

part2. Score here
Arranged in 2004 & 2009
Playing Time: Approx 3 minuts 30 seconds

This was made for my friend's wedding. I played with two of my old friends whom I studied with in a piano course. When I'm requested to play the piano at a wedding, I can't really be calm or eat until I am finished playing. However, if it comes all together as the three of us, I won't get scared. I didn't make this tune so difficult considering I would have some drinks at the wedding. Also, I tried to make this end within 4 minutes, so that we can go back to enjoy the party soon after. Six hands playing can sound noisy and messy, but it can also be seen as very entertaining. I asked for some help from my friend who studied the piano in Moscow. Thank you, my friend.
Another piece for a duet version was made between myself and my wife and we are often asked to play this at weddings.

“Itsumo Nandodemo (Always With Me)” by Yumi Kimura
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in July 2009
Playing Time: Approx. 5 minutes

This is the theme song of the movie “Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi”, produced by Studio Ghibli.
It’s a song of Life and Death led by a tense waltz rhythm. It’s one of the great songs in Japan.
I tried to maintain the image of this song as much as possible.
Some changes have been added in the intermediate & ending parts by putting some harmonious melody,
 which worked out to be in the style of fantasia.
 

“Ragtime Anpanman”
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in June 2009
Playing Time: Approx. 3 minutes 30 seconds

With the image of Ragtime by Scott Joplin and James Scott, I made this music based on my relaxed mood.
Adding “Original Rags” and “Elite Syncopations” made this song lively. Let’s play the piano swaying slowly.
 

“Pegasus Fantasy”
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in May 2009
Playing time: Approx. 3 minutes 30 seconds

This is an opening song from “Saint Seiya” which was very popular in 1990s.
It is one of my favorite songs from my childhood and it’s such a great song that is still alive and powerful to me.
 I deliberately tried to make it as simple as possible to emphasize the melody in the first half.
The original solo in the intermediate part is led by the 2nd player.
It’s quite difficult to keep rhythm through the song but the most difficult is trying to play it
in a cool and sophisticated way.


“Oshiete (Tell me)” from Heidi – Girl of the Alps
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in November 2008
Playing time: Approx. 3 minutes 30 seconds

This is the opening theme song from the leading great Japanese cartoon film – “Heidi – Girl of the Alps”.
The primo and the second player changes very frequently and I aimed to make music that is fun to play.
 

“Nothing Really Blue” by Simon Jeffes
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in March 2009
Playing time: Approx. 5 minutes 10 seconds

This is a piece from the Penguin Café Orchestra, played on the piano only.
It’s basically followed by the original tunes. It’s required a skill of legato as pedalling is hardly used.
 

“BRAHMS’ LULLABY”
[Piano solo]
Music Score is here

Arranged in October 2003 and March 2009
Playing time: Approx. 3 minutes 40 seconds

The motif in Braham’s Lullaby reminds me of the sound of a church bell heard at a great distance.
The sound provides a feeling of deep warmth as if being wrapped by the warmth of a deep forest.
This piece was composed as an etude because the fingering familiarises the player with a greater level
of difficulty. The legato motifs are particularly difficult requiring the player to devise a technique
 to coordinate fingering and pedalling.
 

“KURENAI” by XJAPN
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in February 2009
Playing time: Approx. 5 minutes 10 seconds

I arranged this song by Japanese hard rock legend “X Japan”, faithfully as possible to the original song.
The solo is highlighted. The second half of the main theme is expanded into five (5) versions.
Concentration is required to match each other’s playing.
 

“SOSHUNFU”
 by Hikaru Hayashi, from “Nihon Jojokakyoku shu (Japanese Lyric Suite)”,
Cadenza [Piano Solo],
Music Score is here

Arranged in 2003
Playing time: Approx. 30 seconds

This is a chorus music composed by Hikaru Hayashi. It is composed in the motif of “Longing for Spring”
by Mozart. The piano plays an important role and it’s joyful music in which you can hear 2 types of melodies:
 “Soshunfu”, and “Longing for Spring”, one after the other. I arranged Candenza at the end of the piece.
It’s only 16-bars but has been overlaid with the melody from Piano Concerto No.27 of Mozart,
which makes it skillful Cadenza.

 

“Sazae-san Ending Theme”
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in October 2008
Playing time: Approx. 1 minute 20 seconds

This is the end theme of a very famous Japanese animation, “Sazae-san (Mrs Sazae)”.
 It would be more perfect & complete if it had a handclap to the beat in the opening.
 It’s easy to play and everyone can enjoy listening to it.


“KOGAEMON”
(Doraemon and Etude op.25 no.11 “Winter Wind” by Chopin)
[Four handed playing for piano]
Music Score is here

Arranged in July 2008
Playing time: Approx. 1 minute 20 seconds

This is an unique piece which combines the opening theme of the leading Japanese Animation “Doraemon”
and “Etude of Winter Wind” from Chopin.
