One of the most wonderful American shakuhachi players is going to give a masterclass in Prague, Czech Republic.
Ralph Samuelson has studied for over 30 years with National Living Treasure Yamaguchi Goro and other prominent shakuhachi teachers in Japan and is one of the first of a small group of non-Japanese to be recognized as professional players in Japan. He is active as a performer, teacher, and recording artist in the US, Japan, and elsewhere around the world.

The masterclass will start on the evening March 5th with a concert at Archa Theatre by Ralph Samuelson and Richard Teitelbaum (electronics) consisting of traditional and contemporary music.

On March 6th the masterclass will continue with Ralph explaining his personal approach to the instrument and group lessons on Shin Kyorei (Kinko-ryu honkyoku) and Universal Flute, a famous composition by Henry Cowell. Furthermore, Vlastislav Matoušek will teach his composition Modus Variabilis (aleatorical composition combined with improvised elements for shakuhachi ensemble). The evening will be dedicated to an open mic concert and improvisation which will be joined by Jan Dvořák, Czech sitar player, and other musicians.

The next day the workshop will continue with an overview of the pieces which were taught. This is going to be done individually on 1-on-1 basis.

Hi Marek, What a great opportunity for those around Prague!

I recently posted two upcoming events on Ralph's USA schedule. I hope you don't mind if I list them here on your posting.

http://www.shakuhachiforum.eu/t551-Ralph-Samuelson-at-Fire-Lotus-Temple-Bro…
Feb 4th in Brooklyn, NY

Feb 8th San Francisco, CA

Ralph just held a workshop in Brooklyn to celebrate the Lunar New Years. We played five pieces of music. It was an incredible afternoon full of inspiration and gratitude. I encourage anyone in the area to attend the Prague workshop and concert. Okay

Deep bows, Perry

Hi Perry,

I am looking forward meeting with Ralph, I think it will be his first time in Prague. We'll try to make it grand.

Cheers,

M.
