This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku341 – A fragrant breeze
A fragrant breeze
Is blowing from China
Over these seven strings
This haiku is by Tagami Kikusha (1753-1826), a Japanese multi-disciplinary artist and Buddhist nun, mostly known as a poet, painter, calligrapher and tea practitioner. The haiku was written when she visited the temple Hooryuuji in Nara, in 1812, and was allowed to play an ancient Chinese guqin.
A Fragrant Breeze was written for seven groups of strings – three Violins, two Violas, and two Cellos.
