Twisting Landscapes is a chamber work for clarinet, violin, and piano written by Japanese Composer Makiko Kinoshita in 2004. Taking around 16 minutes to complete, the composition has three movements, which follow a rhythmic-atmospheric-rhythmic structure. Kinoshita, who studied composition at the Tokyo University of the Arts, is particularly renowned for this type of choral music, however, she has also written pieces for individual instruments, chamber ensembles, and orchestra. On top of Twisting Landscapes, other notable works by the composer are Gothic (for wind band), Circuit of Dream (piano suite), and The Trembling Moon (for percussion ensemble), the latter of which is also part of her official discography made up of four albums.
