Sinfonia Ainu.

Tokyo: Ongaku-no-Tomo Sha, Inc., 1958. 12" x 9". 81pp. Cloth wrappers. Wrappers a bit faded, else near fine condition. This work won several prizes, inspiring Ishii to do further work inspired by nationalist primitivism. The work is based on the composer's study of the folk music of the ancient race in Hokkaido, Japan's northern island. Ishii's musical style appeals directly to the emotions, and shows the influence of Carl Orff. Includes the score and the lyrics, in English and Japanese. Item #20641
