[about this concert]
The Tale of the Heike Listening with Heike Biwa is a group where you can listen to the Tale of the Heike while sleeping (lying down) to the accompaniment of the heike biwa. Why don’t you leave your daily routine and enter the world of the Tale of the Heike? You may feel drowsy because of the difficult words and sounds, but you may fall asleep as you are. The sound of the Heike biwa and the narrator’s voice are the stage set. Please create the scenery of the story in your mind.

The Tale of the Heike, Vol. 9 “Atsumori Saigo”
Kumagai Jiro Naozane, a warrior of the Genji clan, was defeated at the Battle of Ichinotani and followed the fleeing Heike nobles to the coast. There he encounters a young warrior wearing luxurious armor. Kumagai succeeds in capturing him, but realizes that the young warrior is about the same age as his own son. Kumagai feels compassion for him and wants to save his life, but the young warrior refuses. Kumagai grips his sword in a conflicted grip, knowing better than to fall into the hands of his allies, who are closing in behind him.
