Kikyo Genso Kyoku


This is a piece of genre Modern Honkyoku from the Azuma Ryû School. This piece was composed for Shakuhachi by the person Fukuda Rando.

Kikyo Genso Kyoku appears on the following albums

Daiyon FUDO - Kineya Seiho Ishikawa Toshimitsu

    These two short compositions, like 'Rando Fukuda's other shakuhachi works, are tinged with sweetness and nostalgia for the romanticism of the Taisho era (1912-1926). Both of these pieces were written at the beginning of the Showa era (1926-1989). Many of Rando's shakuhachi works are based on themes of childhood days or heart-rending memories, and amidst the shakuhachi repertoire they shine brightly. He is widely known for his songs "Fuefuki Doji" (Flute-playing Child) and "Beni Kujaku" (Red Peacock), but in real life he lead a solitary existence.
