Notes & Reviews:

A native of Hiroshima, Japan, composer Toshio Hosokawa combines Western classical traditions with an Asian aesthetic philosophy. Hosokawa studied composition with Isang Yun, Klaus Huber and Brian Ferneyhough. This disc from Wergo features the legendary Arditti Quartet playing quintets and solos that blend eastern and western instruments. Of special note is Threnody, which is dedicated to the victims of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, which claimed more than 20,000 lives.
