Kaoru Kakizakai

Shakuhachi Recital

23 March 2012
21:00
Upper Stage
The concert of the shakuhachi virtuoso Kaoru Kakizakai will embrace both the traditional repertoire of this Japanese instrument and representative samples of contemporary compositions.
25 € | Concs 15 €
Serving as a counterpoint to the appearance of the Ensemble Intégrales in the “Traditions and Contemporary Idioms” cycle, this concert spotlights aspects of the main Japanese musical traditions. The shakuhachi, the Japanese bamboo flute with close links to Zen Buddhism and a history which extends back to the Mediaeval period and beyond, has in the 20th century enchanted a number of Japanese composers and found a place in contemporary Japanese music. This concert of the shakuhachi virtuoso Kaoru Kakizakai will embrace both the traditional repertoire and representative samples of contemporary compositions.
