Shigenori Kudo is an internationally renowned Japanese flutist. Born in Sapporo, Japan, Kudo studied under Jean-Pierre Rampal at Paris National Conservatory of Music. In 1979 he graduated from this academy at the top of his class. Then Kudo leaped into fame by winning the first prize in the Jean-Pierre Rampal Flute Competition in Paris in 1980. Since Then Kudo has been traveling around the world with his favorite two gold flutes in his hands.

While performing all over the world Kudo has been active in recording CDs. More than 30 CDs have been published so far. Among Kudo's CDs this one is unique in that he challenges Japanese folk songs, string and popular music, new types of music for him, and that he plays piccolo and alto flute as well.

You will be glad you added this rare CD to your collection.

The outstanding sound quality of these CDs was made possible by the application of Harmonix tuning techniques and direct recording method. The shortfalls of digital recording caused by electric and mechanical distortions are eliminated by tuning all the elements critical to recording; microphone, cables, amplifiers, A/D converter, PC boards in computer and master disc itself. In this tapeless direct recording editing is done in the computer without repeated copying fo the original recording, thus making the master CD-R disc free of degradation of the original signal.

The result is an entirely new dimension of sound with goodness of both analog and digital recording methods - sound that is warm with much delineation, yet clear and free of noise. You will hear in any of the CDs in this series the result of the intensive and extensive tuning and new type of tapeless direct recording no one has ever tried before.

Kudo's perfect technique and exquisite sound are packaged in this CD. The excellent recording technique succesfully brings out the subtle nuance and changes in the tone. A valuable CD.
