Programme Note
Karen Tanaka Questions of Nature (1998),
All over the world, the natural environment has been destroyed. There is deforestation, air and sea pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, continuing nuclear tests and so on. Many animals have become extinct because their living environment has been destroyed. It is our responsibility as a community to protect the natural environment and the ecosystem for future generations. I hope that we will have a greater respect for the land and the resources we share.

'Questions of Nature' comprises five short pieces: Forest, Air, Ocean, Light and Earth. It was composed as a homage to the endangered planet earth.
