離愁 / Farewell 収録OST: Vol.3 / 完全盤





I wrote “Farewell” about the feelings of the death of a family member – a spouse or parent. It starts off with solo cello, the loneliness of grief; no matter how many are affected by the death of a loved one, for the individual, it can be a solitary feeling of shock, emptiness, disorientation.
About a minute in, the feelings switch to memory – recalling the sweetness, gentleness, and tenderness of the person lost. It is sad, but the primary memory can be more nostalgia or wistfulness; maybe you recall some time spent with your loved one, or things you used to do together.

At 3’10 the main theme comes in. Reminiscent of the melody of “Mino My Home,” Mitsuhide may be remembering his childhood, or early days of marriage. Sometimes when we have a loss of someone close, it draws us back to feelings of home, of where we grew up, especially if it’s as beautiful a place as Mino.

At five minutes in, the melody repeats in its full orchestration. It is somewhat more powerful and intense, but again its primary emotion is sweetness and tenderness. Loss is inevitable, of course, but even if we know that intellectually, it is hard to lose someone we love, whether we’ve been together for one year, or fifty.
