Michael Conforti Pavilion

Duo Yumeno, composed of New York-based koto/shamisen player and singer Yoko Reikano Kimura and cellist Hikaru Tamaki, presents a special, site-specific program in the Michael Conforti Pavilion. They will forge a connection between their music and the art in the exhibition with the aim of creating a singular sound—inspired by tradition but with a contemporary sensibility.

Duo Yumeno’s repertoire includes a dynamic range of compositions, all of which explore the dialogue between classical Japanese and Western music. "Most impressive was how the music told a clear, succinct, and unsentimental story using vocal sounds without texts" (New York Classical Review, September 2016).

This program is sponsored in part by The Japan Foundation, New York.
