Editorial Reviews

Kitaro is universally acknowledged as the founding architect of new age music. Kitaro's various sound collaborations and resonant, multi-textured compositions truly defy the constraints of any genre. The Grammy and Golden Globewinning artist has garnered global acclaim over a more than three decade long career with a signature sound and a pioneering fusion of cultures, techniques and spheresc of consciousness that are truly his own. Kojiki: A Story In Concert, Kitaro crafts this musical journey from the ancient chronicle (Kojiki) that recounts the birth of Japan and it's people. The video captures an evening from his 1990 world tour that features music from the classic Kitaro album Kojiki (nominated for a Grammy in 1990). Kojiki: A Story In Concert is an intimate journey to inner realms as well as exotic earthly destinations. This is a tour de force for Kitaro and his ensemble offering all the drama, grace and humanity performed with a profound spirit in this musical adaptation of legends from traditional Japanese folklore.

Wife was very happy to receive this.

Even though technical quality of this dvd in both video & audio is under average, this one still deserves more than five stars.

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.
