Product Description

Hideki Togi plays the sho (bamboo mouth organ) and hichiriki (flute) instruments used in the stately court music, gagaku. He played the traditional music with the Imperial Palace Gagaku Orchestra, but has become much better known for breathing new life into the instruments by playing a kind of new age music. On this album he sinks to new depths (or reaches new heights depending on your point of view) playing covers of western classics, and Japanese pop hits. These include Romeo & Juliet (Prokofiev), Turandot (Puccini) and Japanese pop songs Sweet Memories and Yozora no Muko (SMAP).
