The Spirit Of Silence - Yoshikazu Iwamoto
An exquisite album of solo Shakuhachi music, featuring six of the most challenging pieces in the classical solo Shakuhachi repertoire. The Shakuhachi (end-blown Japanese bamboo flute) was originally played by mendicant Buddhist monks, wondering the countryside in search of their enlightenment. Iwamoto spurns the recent over-sentimental interpretation of their music, prefering to deal with the nitty-gritty un-ornamented version; It is all too easy to fail to appreciate his gift...simply fail to listen!
