Editorial Reviews

Kitaro, who's been called "the quintessential musician of the New Age", has been breaking barriers, geographically and musically since the late 1970's. His World Tour, recorded live, is even more forceful, intimate and direct than studio incarnations. Kojiki: A Story in Concert, translated as "The Record of Ancient Matters", is a compilation of traditional Japanese lore that was recited orally from generation to generation until the 8th century. Whether on the eerie "Hajimari", the lyrical "Sozo", the sorrowful "Koi", the haunting melancholy of "Nageki", or "Reimei", with its electric guitar jam session, Kitaro's music has never been sharper or more spirited.

Even though technical quality of this dvd in both video & audio is under average, this one still deserves more than five stars. The music is simple but beautiful and inspiring, and is like a symphonic poem. The rendition is wonderfully done using synthesizers, various kinds of drums including traditional ones, electric guitar and violin. It's good to see the handsome violinist who always smiles. I think Kitaro is ingenious in mixing music with oriental emotion. So, I'm ready to buy his next dvd; "Enchanted Evening(vol. 1)". Maybe I could say I'm one of Koreans who tend not to be generous to Japanese people because of a sad history in the past between two countries, but now I'd like to recommend any of you to buy this title and watch it especially in the evening or in the middle of the night after darkening your room.

This is a story turned into music. You should read the story and then try to get the kind of feeling Kitaro had to create this music.
I find this work unique and fascinating. If you practice Tai Chi
some of its parts can be useful for "dancing" that way. I also find some parts good for meditation.
Kitaro is a genius, composer and drum player.
The making of a tale in music becomes a legend by istself !!!
Try it.... Enjoy it.... !

It was great to find this DVD after seeing the concert some years back. If you enjoyed the concert you'll love this DVD.
The picture quality is pretty good (looks like it may have been a laser disc?)and is acceptable for DVD.(Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells concert seems to be the best quality I have seen to date) The sound quality would have been better if had been in PCM.But still a great disc.

Kojiki is definitely one of the most beautiful concerts I've ever heard. Although the DVD does not have a great image quality, it is well worth its content. Seeing Kitaro conducting the other musicians and playing at the same time is amazing. As someone defined above, this is truly a "symphonic poem".

I'm a fan of Kitaro, i think his music is the best in the wolrd, for the sound, the effects. The Kitaro DVD have a very good image and a good sound but i think the LD version sound a little better, because the bass sound in the LD version sond more "dramatic". The video is very good (like other Pioneer DVD's). about of the "goods" on the DVD... is the same of the LD (no preview, no fotography, only a insert with explanation about the concert)

Kojiki is one of kitaro's best works.
The Americanization of this Story of the creation of Japan set me off a bit. The CD is much better.
