Product Description

Recording of a concert that celebrated the 25th anniversary as a taiko player of the remarkable Eitetsu Hayashi, performed at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo in December 2007, under the subtitle 'Sora o Tateite Hikari Hajimete Shiroshi'. He performed four pieces by contemporary Japanese composers, together with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. They were also backed by various other instruments such as timpani and a pipe organ. On the last track, Monoprism, written in 1976 by Maki Ishii, Hayashi performed with six other taiko players plus the orchestra on what has been called the first ever taiko concerto. Groundbreaking stuff.
