Japan Matsuri Presents… Joji Hirota and The London Metropolitan Orchestra

 

Early in 2000 the London Metropolitan Orchestra and Joji Hirota began a collaboration, and in July 2002 they performed together at Womad Festival and later released Hirota’s CD “ The Gate “ by EMI Japan and Real World Record UK.

In this performance Joji Hirota plays the Japanese flute, the fue, set to a backing track recorded by the LMO. Prepare to be amazed by Joji’s subtle handling of the fue, and the beautiful sounds he can achieve from it!
