Notes & Reviews:

This album contains several works widely enjoyed in Japan. Toyama's work makes use of traditional kabuki percussion in a series of popular Japanese folk melodies. Akutagawa's crisp idiom reminds us of Prokofiev and Kabalevsky. Koyama's brilliant piece Kobiki-Uta, consisting of variations on a woodcutter's folk-song, seems to have been written under the influence of Ravel and Stravinsky. Yoshimatsu's work is neo-romatntic, but also echoes the music of Takemitsu.
