Track 6 of my project "Songs for Genji" that hopes to serve as a sort of soundtrack to the famous Japanese novel.

Genji's joy at returning to Kyóto is increased considerably when the emperor, physically worn down from his illnesses, abdicates the throne. The Heir Apparent, Reizei, assumes control of Heian Japan... Reizei is actually Genji's son (a product of his affair with his stepmother, Fujitsubo), though no one beyond his parents knows this. Reizei is merely 11, so he appoints Genji to the position of Palace Minister, which in effect makes Genji regent of Japan (a job he shares with an older and respected friend).

Genji's time in exile and his sudden rise to considerable power purge him of much of his earlier frivolity and philandering. He sets out to provide for the women whose lives his youthful ways disturbed, building an enormous mansion in which to house those people he cares deeply about.

He discovers that one of his many affairs has given him a daughter, and a prophecy predicts that she too, like Reizei, will one day rule Japan.

Simple yet not "simplistic", a well crafted recording, very much a background piece while revealing more intricacy the closer I listen - great incidental music writing.

The entrance of the flute gave me chills. The flavor of the culture comes through so well in your instrumentation. Amazing work, as always.

I'm with feenixx. And a much calmer piece quite fitting for a mature Genji.

Beautiful work.
