~ From our Guestbook ~

- We experienced the most beautiful duets by Kiki and Kuku. Both of them are excellent artists on their instruments. With a lot of humour they made us familiar with the opera “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”. Great Thanks to you!

- Congratulations!! I am looking forward to listening to your performance again.

- What a wonderful sound of flute and clarinet ... there are only two instruments but somehow we experienced the musical world of a full orchestra. I would like to let my students listen to you, too. Please, make concerts in Japan again!

- Many happy returns to you, who are like a young couple in love!!

- It was really jolly. I found that your flute and clarinet match very well.
