Japanese composer Keiko Fujiie's song cycle Wilderness Mute will draw on words of witnesses and survivors of the atomic blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki to make an eloquent statement about the urgency of preventing nuclear war. The work will be scored for soprano, baritone, violin, clarinet, cello, and double bass. Ms. Fujiie, a long-time Nagasaki resident and one of Japan’s most noted and frequently-performed composers, has been honored twice with the NHK Symphony Orchestra’s coveted Otaka Prize.
