Notes & Reviews:

While Takemitsu’s reputation as one of the 20th century’s greatest modernists is recognized around the world, his accomplishments as a songwriter are largely unknown outside of Japan. This recital displays his stylistic versatility and knowledge of popular song idioms. The songs on this program come from all stages of Takemitsu’s creative life, from the 1950s to the year of his death, and each is a superbly crafted miniature—by turns tuneful, elegant, and fragile.

Gramophone Magazine
A fine set: Takemitsu's songs should be less undervalued after this.
