Programme Note
Karen Tanaka Lilas (1988)
'Lilas' was written as a floral tribute for Frances Marie Uitti, commissioned by the Gaudeamus Foundation in Amsterdam as a result of receiving the Gaudeamus Prize in 1987. This piece should ideally be performed in a garden in May.

Karen Tanaka's Lilas for solo cello (1987) "to be performed in a garden in May", was richly expressive as well as technically demanding.
Stephen Pettitt, The Times,5/23/1989
