Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Japanese composer Shiro Fukai allied himself firmly with French musical traditions, absorbing in particular the musical language of Ravel. The latter's 'Bolero' is echoed in the crescendo of 'Chantes de Java', with its repeated theme, while Ravel, Falla, Stravinsky and Roussel provide the inspiration for the Quatre mouvements parodiques. The ballet 'Creation', an amalgam of ancient Japanese imperial dance music, vaulting rhythms and opulent orchestral sonorities, was commissioned, together with other works by Japanese and foreign composers, to celebrate the 2600th year of Japanese imperial rule.
