Screen Captures of Fuan 4 DVD set of Archival Videos

Screen captures from the 4 DVD set of videos produced by Soshin heir Genshin Sakai from the 1980's and 1990's.  Available at the Hogaku Journal,  this impressive set of Taizan honkyoku in an archival transfer, edit and design DVD set.   Fuan's playing has a warm and generous spirit,  with excellent sound.  The image quality for the 25 year or so old video material is better than expected.

92 years old; strong and sensitive playing.
