Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Now regarded as one of the most important composers of the second half of the twentieth century, Toru Takemitsu was the first Japanese composer to gain international status. This selection of his piano music, extending over 43 years, offers an inclusive overview of his stylistic development from Romance (1949), the nineteen-year-old composer's earliest surviving piano work, to the hypnotic Rain Tree Sketch II (1992), Takemitsu's last work for solo piano.
