Zhang Shengqun's performance of Shakuhachi is from the album "Music: Shakuhachi - Zhang Shengqun".

Although it is called certainty, it speaks of impermanence.

This piece is a modern piece made by Japanese composer Masako Kitsaya. Widespread. The background of his creation is that he experiences great joy and great sorrow in one day. He feels that life is alive, joy and sorrow are adjacent, and he does not know what will happen when, this is the so-called life. Although clearly aware of this, it is still reluctant to experience it. I hope that I can accept everything that happens calmly. In the piece, the same phrase is repeated twice, and it is played in two different states, like a dialogue.

Made of bamboo, with cinnabar mixed with lacquer on the inside to fill the (ground) incision, it is now five holes (the first four and the last one). Vast, but also can show the ethereal, quiet artistic conception.
