Works include Daron Hagen’s Concerto for Koto and String Quartet (2011), Paul Moravec’s Shakuhachi Quintet, Toro Takemitsu’s A Way a Lone, and two pieces by James Nyoraku Schlefer. Kyo-Shin-An Arts is dedicated to the integration of Japanese classical instruments (specifically shakuhachi, koto and shamisen) in Western classical music. They facilitate, commission and produce new works and concerts that bring forth the outstanding virtuosity of the Japanese tradition within the context of chamber ensembles and orchestras.
