REVIEW

July 25, 2008

This CD is part original soundtracks and part new re-recordings of Toru Takemitsu's music. I enjoyed the sound of this CD and the music. I guess you would call the style of music Modern Classical. Not much else to say about this disc since most of the tracks have appeared in one form or another on other Toru Takemitsu CD's. If you're a fan it's worth owning and it's apleasant listening experience in any case.
