Cool, Gunnar (Jinmei Linder) performed the same piece in a church here in Stockholm at the end of October, if you want to compare notes! I was unable to attend, but I understand it requires several changes between different lenghts of shakuhachi?

Indeed. I would play on a 1.6; 1.8; 2.2 (Bb) and 2.3 (A).... but some of then don't go so well together so I might just play on 2.2 and 1.8. Haven't decided yet. Smile
Could be fun to ask Gunnar which choices he did regarding flute length.

Thanks for the info, Niklas!

I played Jenkins' Requiem 2 times using 1.8, 1.6 and 2.3 (Bb), but perhaps I would do differently now.

I will end up just playing with a D and Bb flute.
If I had 4 matching flutes, I would play it on 2.3 (A), 2.2 (Bb), 1.8 (D) and 1.6 (E).... but the E is too flat and the A sounds too odd in comparison with the other 2....
So end result is just the 2 mentioned first. I surely will do differently if I had different flutes. Smile

Nice to see that so many have played this piece.

Personally I don't think it is a masterpiece at all.... but surely nice to get the shakuhachi out there!
So thank you. Niklas and Jean-Francois for sharing! Okay

I just found my score. This is what I played last time :

The Snow of Yesterday : 2.3 (Bb)
From Deep in my Heart : 1.6
Now as a Spirit : 1.8
Having Seen the Moon : 1.6
Farewell : 1.6

Cool! It is fun to see what people choose. The pieces are simple but the simplicity also makes them want to be play on shakuhachi that really fits the tonality...

My plan was:
The Snow of Yesterday: 2.2 (Bb)
From Deep in my Heart: 2.3 (A)
Now as a Spirit: 1.8 (D)
Having Seen the Moon: 1.8 (D) or I did also think of 1.6 (E)
Farewell: 1.6 (E)

But now I end up with everything in 1.8 except the Bb in The Snow of Yesterday
