    Hajime Okumura (January 13, 1925 - April 2, 1991) was a Japanese composer, music educator, pianist, oboist and bassoonist.
    Okumura studied music and composition with Kan'ichi Shimofusa (himself a former student of Paul Hindemith) at Toyama Army School; Tamezou Narita and Kiyoshi Nobutoki at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in Tokyo (now Tokyo University of the Art). Akira Ifukube was a fellow student.
    Okumura was a lecturer at Musashino Academia Musicae in Tokyo.
    As a composer he is best known for his works for concert band; he can be considered as a Japanese pioneer in this genre. One of his well-known works is his Rhapsody for piano and orchestra. He also wrote several operas and in the period 1952-1965 the music for fourteen films. Okumura's style is often described as eclectic, in which he uses tonal modernism.

I love this! I'd really like to source the book this came from, I really like how Okumura arranges these Japanese folk songs for piano. Would you have any ideas where I could find the book, it's proving difficult as its pretty obscure

I liked it a lot, but I found the structure a bit confusing, at least on this first listen. Thank you for posting.

Thank you for posting this piece by a fairly unknown composer. It caught my attention the very first moment I watched this video and read the sheet music. Finally, it inspired me to play it myself and post it on my channel.

Nowadays it is hard to make good music. The Japanese' however, continue to surprise me with their compositions, they are truly touching in their simplicity. And that is what makes them beautiful.

Kamil, I want to challenge you to think about most all music as being natural, as everything (even intellectualism) extends from the human condition. It may be course, or sharp, or complex, or harsh, but it is all a part of human expression. Not only that, but some composers (as I'm sure you know) emote in ways that baffle most listeners, like the very earnest expressions of devotion to the Christian / Catholic god in Penderecki's music and in Messiaen's music. The only time it may be unnatural is when it does not come from a place of honesty, when the composer feels pressured to do something they are not artistically convinced of or something that is not natural to them.

Yes, it's very hard. Often modern classical music is unnatural. Lately I was at the concert of modern music and after 40 minutes I felt my mind and my body very tired.

That's interesting-- so it is in six-tone mode. That makes sense.

You mean the C-sharp note?? I don't know if Japanese music has the same thing but in Chinese folk music theory, a pentotonic scale with a certain extra note(偏音) is called six-tone mode(六声调式)..and if with 2 extra notes, then it's called seven-tone mode(七声调式)..I don't know how Japanese people explain that but I guess it's pretty much the same thing here.

The melody is almost entirely pentatonic. The one non-pentatonic note in the melody surprised me.
