Part of the Lyrichord Archive Series - Never before released recordings on CD from the Lyrichord vaults

Remastered and newly released for the first time since the 1960s, JAPANESE KABUKI NAGAUTA MUSIC. played by the The Kyoto Kabuki Orchestra, is now digitally available on the Lyrichord Archive Series. Compared with the Japanese Noh play, which developed a few centuries before, Kabuki is secular, realistic, and even somewhat vulgar. The gestures of Noh are condensed and symbolical; its characters abstract and esthetic. Kabuki teems with color and life. Its music is derived from many sources, including shrine and folk music. This recording fully captures and conveys the authentic Kabuki tradition for contemporary listeners to enjoy.
