In November 2006 TD got the offer from a Japanese Business Manager, who turned 82 last year, to compose and record the so-called 'Five Atomic Seasons'. As it was clear that this was a real serious assignment, TD were told that the person who ordered the composition did study during his youth in the two cities which had been destroyed by atomic bombardments back in 1945, Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
The five compositions had to be in length 54 minutes each. Part one and two, - Spring and Summer 1945 - the client spent living in Nagasaki, while he lived in Hiroshima in Autumn and Winter of 1945, where he survived one of the most lunatic and barbarian war crimes ever done by mankind.
Spring and Summer will describe the normal atmosphere in a Japanese city with some of the rising premonitions of what will happen on August 9th 1945. Autumn and Winter in Hiroshima will musically mirror what happened after August 6th 1945.
The Fifth Season supposes to be the ´time after´, the so-called 'endless season'.
Here you´ll have part one 'Springtime in Nagasaki', part two 'Summer in Nagasaki' will be released on July 1st this year.
TD is contractually allowed to release just a limited number of pressings through this site, so if you’re interested in this rare item, please use the possibility to pre-order the CD now in our Eastgate Shop.
Shipping will start from March 23rd, 2007 on.
