Synopsis:                              Mr. Fujieda'a extremely difficult piece subjects its Gregorian
                                       theme to an incessant scrambling shifts of color and texture.
                                       Its subject stands, nothing moves.

Synopsis:                              The weakest offering was Fujieda's Kyrie Resounded I, he set a
                                       flat clarinet line of modulating arpeggios against moody,
                                       Messiaenish chords on the piano and sounded like a reg. piece
