Comment: "originally composed and performed for sangen and orchestra in 1927. But in 1931 the piece was performed with KANGEN(咸絃).
KANGEN is a kind of electric instrument which has a small generator of electricity under the bridge. KANGEN had been invented in 1931." (Note by MIZUNO Mikako, May 24, 2014).
