This project report gives a biography of Louis Moyse's history as well as an interpretation on three of his compositions with Japanese influence: Introduction, Theme, and Variations, Variations on Three Japanese Folk Songs, and Hommage a Krishan. An informed performance of these works can be achieved by studying Louis' influences, compositional style, and a history of his childhood and background. These three pieces all have characteristics of "folk like" melodies along with elements of Japanese influence. This influence came from his travels throughout Japan with his father and wife Janet. Since the Japanese flute, the shakuhachi, is an important part of Japanese culture and music, it is important to understand the basic concept of sound production on the instrument and to incorporate the sounds and tone of the shakuhachi into these compositions.
