Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In the compositions of Yoshihiro Kanno (b. 1953) he bases himself on three idioms: Western instrumental music, Japanese traditional instruments and computer music. Combining these various elements freely, he creates scores for Japanese instruments and computer as well as for Western and Japanese instruments. The pianist Noriko Ogawa, acclaimed for a wide-ranging discography comprising music by Mozart and Debussy to Takemitsu and Graham Fitkin, is a champion of Kanno's music, having commissioned three of the works on the present disc, the so-called 'Particle of Piano' series.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
Noriko Ogawa plays with delicacy or thunder, as required, always with a beguiling tone. She seduces us into Kanno's numinous world. Listen to how she produces a Lunar Rainbow, for example (one of two rainbow pieces). She makes us believe it's real and all around us. The recording, like the music, is all-enveloping.
