Notes & Reviews:

Deutsche Grammophon launched its new series of contemporary classical music: 20/21 in February 1999 with Toru Tekemitsu's "Quotation". This new installment in the series returns to Takemitsu. Takemitsu's compositions are a fusion of Japanese traditional and Western music. The result of this cultural blend is hauntingly beautiful pieces that take the listener to newly created musical worlds.
