with love from Arashiyama...
( for Yokobue / 5' )
This piece is aimed for Yokobue, which is the term that is given to the Japanese ‘Transverse Flute Family’. The purpose of the piece is to introduce and blend some unique features and techniques of the Yokobue with contemporary music. ‘with love from Arashiyama...’is originally intended for Yokobue; yet one could play the piece in Western concert flute or any other ethnic (preferably transverse or any end blown flute that one could accurately perform the techniques) flutes that provides the necessary range.
