Music Performance: Japanese Koto Soloist Yumi Kurosawa
November 8, 2018
UMass Amherst Campus
Yumi Kurosawa, one of the best known soloists on the koto (Japan's national instrument) highlights the amazing versatility of this instrument to execute the movements of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Japanese classical compositions by composer Kengyo Yatsuhashi, as well as her own enchanting songs.
Her collaborations with world musicians have resulted in the release of two albums. Kurosawa is equally at ease playing with a string quartet as with dance as shown by her work with the Beyonce-affiliated dance duo Les Twins.
