Notes & Reviews:
Toshio Hosokawa's goal as a composer is "to express something that we have already lost." Born in Hiroshima, Hosokawa's upbringing and culture have large influences on his compositions. Hosokawa uses various instrumentations throughout this release to achieve the sounds he desires - string quartets, chamber ensembles, violin concertos and a flute and piano duo.
