Chidori no Kyoku: A CD for Learning
Notes on playing Chidori-no-Kyoku with multiple
koto or shakuhachi.
When koto is playing kaete from
chidori-no-bu, the koto kaete
part is close to the shakuhachi part.
When there is only one (honte) koto player, the shakuhachi plays
main (left) line in chidori-no-bu.
When there are two kotos
(honte and kaete), the shakuhachi plays
alternate (right) line.
When there are two shakuhachi players, one plays the main line, and
the other plays the last page of Kawase notation, the "Tegoto Kaete"
One could also play the shakuhachi tegoto kaete in accompanyment
with the "koto kaete from chidori no bu" recording here. The parts
fit with each other.
