Double CD (clocking in at over 140 mins) of solo Hichiriki, (Gagaku flute) plus koto, other flutes such as the fue, sho, the lute instrument the biwa, and voices. Tougi and other featured musicians come from a long line of traditional music in their families, on an album of exquisite music. Gagaku, or court music, can sound rather eerie at first, but mesmorizing after a while. Classy packaging, and beautifully recorded. Gagaku has recently been hijacked by some into an easy listening melange of pop tumes, so it's good to hear the real thing.
