Slow Motion is a composition for accordion by Toshio Hosokawa written in 2002 for Teodoro Anzellotti, who premiered it in Vienna's Konzerthaus on April 3 that year.[1] Lasting circa 13 minutes, it is a contemplative work inspired in gagaku and its integration of the dancer's bodies with the earth, with the accordion emulating a shō playing a nocturnal dance in the moonlight.[2]
