Performance with
Japanese traditional musical instruments

2015.11.9 MON


The Institute for Medieval Japanese Studies of Columbia University has devoted efforts to promoting the appeal of traditional Japanese music and musical instruments. It has also made efforts to foster the development of non-Japanese performers of traditional Japanese musical instruments. Following last year’s concert, with the support of Columbia University Professor Emerita Barbara Ruch and the world-renowned composer and pianist of contemporary music Toshi Ichiyanagi, leading players of Japanese traditional musical instruments of the university and participating artists of CHANEL Pygmalion Days will perform together at the CHANEL NEXUS HALL. We hope that these concerts will be inspiring and present future possibilities for traditional Japanese musical instruments and that this collaboration will result in the further significant development of our Japanese musicians of classical music.
