Miyagi, Kiyoko – “Koto Music” – [Victor Entainment Inc.]
This 1966 gem features Kiyoko Miyagi on koto.
Side 1 is Rokudan which translates to 6th stage (or step or symphony). It was composed by Kengyo Yatsuhashi in the 1600’s and is a classic piece for koto.
Side 2 is Seoto which translates to sound of running river. It is a 20th century composition by Michio Miyagi (1894-1956).
Very beautiful with an interesting contrast between old and relatively new pieces.
(Thanks to my brother-in-law for translation help.)
