Notes & Reviews:

Well known in his native Japan as a composer of over 100 film scores, including 'The Seven Samurai', and acknowledged by Takemitsu as one of his most formative influences, Humiwo Hayasaka sought to combine common elements of Western Gregorian chant and Oriental, Gagaku-like melodies. His 1948 'Piano Concerto' is written in a romantic style suggestive of Chopin and Rachmaninov. The first movement is a requiem for his brother and an elegy for the victims of World War II. By way of contrast, the second movement is light-hearted and played staccato almost throughout. 'Ancient Dances on the Left and on the Right' takes its inspiration from ancient Japanese courtly dance music, 'Bugaku, while the 'Overture in D' moves in forward in relentlessly to a 'furioso' conclusion that that recalls the music of Stravinsky and of Hayasaka's friend and fellow composer Akira Ifukube (Naxos 8.555071 and 8.557587).
