This is one of the most exciting concerts I have all year - KAMMERRAKU, a concert of four new pieces with string quartet and Japanese instruments. I will perform Paul Moravec's new piece for shakuhachi and string quartet, plus "String Journey," my new piece for shamisen and string quartet, will have the world premiere. Also the world premiere of "KyoShin" for shakuhachi, koto and string quartet by Somei Satoh. Here are the program details. I hope you can come! -James

KAMMERRAKU® カっめ楽 ● a Program of Kyo-Shin-An Arts Commissions

Featuring Japanese masters Nami Kineie (shamisen), Yumi Kurosawa (koto), and James Nyoraku Schlefer(shakuhachi) and the dynamic Voxare String Quartet

Two world premieres and one NY premiere, each with its own distinctive character and instrumentation. From the romanticism of Daron Hagen’s operatic story for koto, to the lingering soundscape of Somei Satoh’s evocative sextet, from the elegant craft of Paul Moravec, to the rhythmic intensity of James Nyoraku Schlefer, experience unique beauty when two classical traditions meet in a new musical world.
