Program Note

Wagyu Pigs was composed in 2019 for Ensemble Linea. It is a story taking place in a farm somewhere in the world, of a small number of pigs living amongst a herd of wagyu. It is the only wish of the pigs to become an equal and proud member of the wagyu club, nonetheless, despite all efforts, the pigs are not and cannot be perceived as wagyu from others.
