Oriental Nutshell – PianoTweet no. 81 (Replay)

(text written on March 22nd 2011, 11 days after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan)

Today’s PianoTweet has an exotic title.
But my feelings while playing this piece were less exotic than you might pressume.

Again my emotions went to the people in Japan.

It’s a huge story:
deeply “moving” in more than one sense.
A story that doesn’t fit in a nutshell.

This music is so tiny and small
in comparison to what’s happening over there.

That’s what I wanted to express with this little tune.
