Donald WomackA Glinting Edge of Skyshakuhachi (or cello) and 21-string koto or 13-string koto 尺八(またはチェロ)と21絃箏または13絃箏10:002008
Recorded on Walk Across the Surface of the Sun (Albany Records)

A Glinting Edge of Sky presents a rich scoring in the traditional pairing of shakuhachi and koto . At turns spacious, lyrical, agitated, calm and reflective, the music suggests a passing beauty just beyond reach.


"Even at nearly ten minutes, A Glinting Edge of Sky sings intensely. Koto and shakuhachi play their own material at what seems like an illusion of each player’s independent pace. Yet the two strains fit each other. The score has the concentration of a haiku."
