There are no performers on traditional Japanese instruments where I live -- other than me. But I'm also a professional Western flutist, and luckily have some really talented colleagues who are interested in playing in duos, trios, or larger ensembles with shakuhachi on some of our concerts.
Anyone have any leads on notation that we could obtain?
Some specific requests so far are music for shakuhachi and classical guitar, or for piano (harp?) parts for the Tozan pieces Mutsuraboshi and/or IchiKotsu.
Western notation is a must for the piano/strings/woodwinds; I can read Kinko and Western and figure out Tozan.
Ideas and/or suggestions, anyone?
Many thanks.....

Check out Riley Lee's CD with harpist Marshall McGuire for repertoire which sounds nice on shakuhachi, if you can play it like Riley. Mr. Green

Thanks, Brian -- great idea; I'll look into it.

Since I've gotten a few questions about this request --just to clarify, I'm not looking for Western music to play on the shakuhachi. I'm looking for shakuhachi music that was written for or can be arranged for shakuhachi with Western instruments, replacing the traditional Japanese instruments not available here. Most easily available locally, in addition of course to shakuhachi, are standard orchestral strings, classical guitar, piano, clarinet, oboe, flute, maybe harp.
Any ideas?
Thanks --

Akio Yashiro made some transcriptions of traditional japanese melodies for flute & harp, and compiled them in an album. Most of them are playable on shakuhachi (Haru no umi, Sakura, Kōjō no tsuki...)
