In this album, Hasegawa Kagemitsu portrayed the inner world of Yoshitsune in his close relationships with bamboo flutes. The album is comprised of nine sections, which are based on episodes from the time when Shanao, Yoshitsune’s childhood name, departed Kurama till he died at Hiraizumi. Kagemitsu recently deciphered the flute scores of Ohga-no Motomasa who was Yoshitsune’s contemporary. He used those scores extensively to reproduce the music that Yoshitsune possibly played, and sublimated the work with his superior musical sense.
