On Saturday April 21 at 6:00PM EST, I will play four pieces for shakuhachi and string quartet at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. The concert is part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and features the Colorado Quartet. The pieces are Marty Regan's beautiful and mournful "Voyage," the World Premiere of Paul Moravec's "Quintet" based on a theme of Shakespeare, Carlos Sanchez-Gutierrez' strikingly poetic "Here, Again," and my own Quintet. Here's the promo link - http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/2012/03/02/wind-through-the-strings/

And the performance is live webcast, so if you want to check it out, tune in. Here's the link for the webcast, however it only, becomes active at the time of the show - http://www.kennedy-center.org/explorer/artists/?entity_id=85043&source_type=B

I would love to get feedback about the music from forum members!

Hoping to see many of you in Kyoto in June!!!

James

Hi Kiku, Thanks for your interest! The concert is archived and you can watch it here. But I must tell you, Paul Moravec's piece fell apart in a few places so please wait for a proper performance which I hope I can post in a few weeks after the second round of performances.
