This album is one of my favourite projects I’ve done with the recorder. ‘Breathe’ is a collection of four traditional Japanese shakuhachi ‘Bushi’ or melodies about space, time and breath. They may sound simple, but the amount of technique and musicianship needed to perform these beautiful works requires another level.
I re-imagined these works for recorders after being inspired by the works and performance of Kôhachiro Miyata’s ‘Shakuhachi – The Japanese Flute’.
I hope you fall in love with these like I did.
