Description
1 sound disc (ca. 59 min.) : digital, stereo.; 4 3/4 in.
Summary
Listen to a live performance of contemporary music written for koto, the classical zither of Japan, on this New Sounds program From the Vaults. This 1990 show features a bold and serene articulation of a work for koto & bass koto by the Kazue Sawai Koto Ensemble. In a piece called "Homura," this virtual armada of kotos approximates fiery swells and crashes, along with peaceful ebbs and flows. Plus, some music for the birds by Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara, and more--Cf. New Sounds webpage ("Vaults: A Koto Armada" http://www.wnyc.org/shows/newsounds/2005/aug/23/)
