Song of the Plover

千鳥幻想 Song of the Plover – Tadao Sawai 1980

The piece “Song of the Plover”(Chidori no kyoku), was originally for voice and koto and is based on a classical Koto piece. The composer uses 13 & 17 string Kotos in a new arrangement to express a beautiful scene with the call of the plovers, flying to and fro.
