We are excited to announce our 2020 Masterclass with Teruo FURUYA (shakuhachi), director and principal instructor of the Kokusai Shakuhachi Kenshūkan (KSK) in Japan and Mizuka ONISHI (koto/shamisen), recipient of the Tottori Prefecture Cultural Achievement Award 2020, in Saint-Maurice (Paris). The dates are the weekend of the 7 & 8 March and for the location we will return to the Academy of Music and Theater of Saint Maurice.
As in previous years the masterclass will again offer an opportunity to study honkyoku pieces from the Katsuya YOKOYAMA lineage as transmitted through the Kenshūkan and from the wider KSK repertoire. This years’ pieces will be the two honkyoku Koku and Sagariha, the sokyoku Haru no Kyoku and the modern Fukuda RANDO composition Tabibito no Uta. For registered participants we will send you photocopied scores and sound files in due course.

“Découverte de la musique japonaise” – as part of a weekend of traditional and contemporary japanese music with Emmanuelle Rouaud (shakuhachi) and Naoko Kikuchi (koto, shamisen) in Montigny-le-Bretonneux (France), I was presenting my PVC shakuhachi at the Franco-Japanese Cultural Institute, Salle Jacques Brel as well as the Canal Mediatheque in Montigny.
