"Kaguyahime is one of Japan's oldest fairytales.

Through its use of Western percussion instruments and Japanese drums, the work combines both Occidental and Oriental elements, its rhythmic vitality providing a musical structure for the poetic tale. Woodwind instruments extend the tonal color, as does the use of traditional Gagaku music from the Japanese court"--Container
