TREASURES OF JAPAN: GAGAKU AND BUGAKU CLASSICAL MUSIC AND DANCE

Kitanodai Gagaku Ensemble

 

Wednesday, October 16 7:30p.m., Bowker Auditorium
$20, $15; Five College/GCC/STCC Students and Youth 17 & under: $10

 

The ancient and imperial court music of the gagaku orchestra and dances is the oldest orchestral tradition in the world – a style of music that has remained pure and unchanged over the centuries. Elegant and ethereal the music of gagaku is nearly always experienced in an almost otherworldly way with a unique and poetic sound that washes over you as it reflects the music of the cosmos.

For ticket holders a pre-performance talk will be presented at 6:45p.m.by Anne Prescott, Director, Five College Center for East Asian Studies; Koto player and teacher.
