DescriptionExcerpt: 

The Japanese traditions of narrative and instrumental music exist independently of one another but flow together in the music of the Japanese theater. This album features four of the most popular dance pieces from the Kabuki stage, an excerpt from one of the great narrative epics, and music from three purely instrumental traditions.
