Traditional: selections for solo shamisen

Featuring Hidejiro Honjoh, shamisen (and UC Davis artist-in-residence), the Empyrean Ensemble will present world premieres by UC Davis graduate student composers in its annual “New Music from Davis” program. Conducted by Matilda Hofman, UC Davis lecturer in music, the instrumentation of each new work complements the featured instrument, the traditional (and versatile!) Japanese 3-string plucked shamisen.
