Tribute to Toshi Ichiyanagi

January 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Duo YUMENO – Yoko Reikano Kimura on koto and shamisen, Hikaru Tamaki on cello and special guest pianist Vicky Chow will pay homage to the legendary composer Toshi Ichiyanagi. Ichiyanagi, who passed away in 2022, was a protégé of John Cage during the 60s and had a profound influence on the post-war Japanese music landscape.

The program will explore his music written for both traditional Japanese and Western instruments and celebrates his six-decade-long career. Highlights include Paraphrase for shamisen and cello (2019), which was commissioned by the duo, Time Sequence (1976), a dazzling piano solo in the minimalist style, and Linked Poems of Autumn (1990), Ichiyanagi’s tribute to the Japanese koto-song tradition that features the texts by the haiku poet Matsuo Bashō.

Join us for an evening of provocative and brilliant contemporary music.
