Time 2:00 PM

The duo will perform Heike Quarto, a four-piece suite composed by Daron Hagen - one of the most prominent American opera composers - that was commissioned by the duo between 2015 and 2018. This concert will be the first opportunity to hear the entire suite in a live concert setting.
The cycle was inspired by The Tale of Heike, an epic account of the struggle between two warrior clans in medieval Japan, and seamlessly integrates idioms of both traditional Japanese and Western classical music.

Duo YUMENO CD Release Concert

Venue Marc A. Scorca Hall, The National Opera Center America

New York based Duo YUMENO - Yoko Reikano Kimura (koto/Japanese 13-string zither, shamisen/Japanese long-neck lute and voice) and Hikaru Tamaki (violoncello) - presents a concert of contemporary works, as well as classical Western and Japanese music.

The duo is celebrating the recent release of its first album, Flowers, Birds, Wind, Moon: The Music of Marty Regan, which features the first and only significant duo written for koto and violoncello. The internationally acclaimed composer Marty Regan was commissioned by the duo to write this suite over the course of four years, and the recording was completed in early 2015.

The blending of these two instruments was praised as "exquisite" and "compelling" by the Aoyama Music Award jury (Kyoto, Japan), which awarded the duo the 2014 Baroque Saal Prize.

The concert will also feature newly commissioned works by the renowned composer Daron Hagen and by Yoko Satō.
