GLASS Hopper

(by the composer himself)

I often feel that music of Phillip Glass has many vitality like living things.
And I also feel it as very very stylish.
My imagination was inspired and it grew imagination of homage as Glass"not grass"hopper.
This music will be jumping,stopping and walking quickly on the keyboard like vitality of his music.
I present this piece with sincerely for my great friend Nicolas Horvath and his great challenge.
