The anniversary concert “The Harmonious Sound of Koto” is a concert of traditional Japanese music featuring exponents of the highest quality from the Tokyo University of the Arts (TUA) to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Japan and Denmark. “Koto” is a traditional Japanese stringed musical instrument, and the main Koto player Mr. Shoin Hagioka succeeded to the name and established mastership as Shoin Hagioka Ⅳ in 1980. This is the first time for TUA, which is the only national university of the arts in Japan that offers traditional Japanese music programs, to perform in Denmark. We hope that you enjoy “The Harmonious Sound of Koto” in ensemble with other traditional Japanese instruments –the Shamisen, Shakuhachi and Tsudzumi.
