Program note


「My Precious」とはトールキンの名作『指輪物語』の登場人物であるゴラムの科白だが、これは自らが大切にしていた魔法の指輪のことを「愛しい人(My Precious)」と呼んだ科白であり、前述したフェティシズムを象徴する一句として本曲の題名に引用される。


The word “Fethisism” means the worship of “Fetish” that is human-made object and believed to have supernatural powers such as Voodoo. In psycholody, Other means is a sexual fixation on a nonliving object or nongenital body part, It came to mean “Partialism”.

“My Precious” this line is spoken by Gollum who is fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien’s “Load of the Rings”, for the ring he had to cherish. This line reminds “Fethisism”, So this is quoted to this composition title.

The cellist is loving the cello of with various acting, on the other hand, the cello reply to the cellist with sounds. This solo performance is “Duo” ensemble between cellist and cello, that ensemble feel minimum.
