5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, 27 July 2007

This review is from: Shakuhachi - The Japanese Flute (Audio CD)
The Shakuhachi is a Japanese wind instrument that produces a beautifully haunting sound and is played here by K˘hachiro Miyata. This CD includes five pieces of music played on the Shakuhachi, all of which are relaxing and a pleasure to hear. The front slip of the CD also includes a brief history and description of the Shakuhachi as well as information about the pieces played and K˘hachiro Miyata himself. This is a greatly beautiful CD and although I would admit it probably wouldn't be to everyone's taste, anybody interested in oriental music, and Japanese music in particular, should greatly enjoy this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars japanese flute music, 7 Feb. 2008

This review is from: Shakuhachi - The Japanese Flute (Audio CD)
A beautifully produced and hauntingly lovely recording of Shakuhachi Japanese flute music recorded in 1976 in New York during the Ensemble Nipponia's first tour of US. However at just 33minutes 28seconds long it does leave one wanting rather more for one's money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shakahachi dream, 28 Oct. 2009
By 
This review is from: Shakuhachi - The Japanese Flute (Audio CD)
This is a beautiful recording of the Japanese shakahachi flute. I have given it a four star rating because it is a little lacking in contrast for most listeners like myself because I am not an expert in that particular instrument, but for the conoscenti it probably would deserve a five star rating. Lovely to meditate to or to chill out to. Very poetic and exquisite.

4.0 out of 5 stars More ringing in the empty CD, 1 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Shakuhachi - The Japanese Flute (Audio CD)
Total time playing 33:29, not including space between tracks. This is vinyl length, remastered, for digital, and for a CD, about half length usually expected. But this is a music of transcendental power, beyond calculation of time interval, performed by a master, beyond the compass of the street. Learn to breath as he sings, learn to move, as he articulates and holds each note, each absence of sound. Focus and concentrate on that which is given. Endless reward.
