Concert 2 | Kyoku: Sound Colours from Japan

Sunday 10th March
7:30pm Department of Music
Palace Green, Durham

The multi-instrumentalist composer Mieko Miyazaki returns to Durham – this time joined by Suizen Lagrost, a phenomenal player of the shakuhachi bamboo flute. The bright sonorities of Miyazaki’s koto zither, shamisen lute and voice blend perfectly with the haunting sounds of Lagrost’s flute, creating a wonderfully varied and evocative palette of sound colours. In this concert, the duet performs a selection of traditional kyoku chamber pieces, celebrated works from the early 20th century, and newer pieces that playfully fuse styles from contrasting places and times – taking you on a journey which is sure to be poetic, intense and surprising.

Tickets: £10, Students £4, Under 18s: £1
