Notes & Reviews:

Isotaro Sugata's compositions may be viewed as a synthesis of several different kinds of Western music, as well as incorporating elements of traditional Japanese imperial music. Inspired by Hindemith, the polyphonic 'Symphonic Overture' is virtually a single-movement symphony. Calling for an orchestra with triple winds and Japanese traditional percussion, 'Peaceful Dance of Two Dragons' is a free and powerful paraphrase of 'Nasori', a 'Gagaku' dance. 'Dancing Girl in the Orient', taken from "Sketches of the Desert" - 'Suite in Oriental Style', is written in the manner of Rimsky-Korsakov and Ketelbey.
