Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Regarded as one of the most important composers of the second half of the twentieth century, Toru Takemitsu was the first Japanese composer to gain international status. The works on this disc cover Takemitsu's career from early 'Solitude Sonore' to 'Sprirt Garden' composed two years before his death. Inspired by a dream, 'A Flock Descends into the Pentagonal Garden' has passages of randomness, surges of dissonance and delicate melodies.
