This CD was recorded at Mitaka City Arts Concert Hall, February 20-21, 2014.

This CD is very enjoyable guitar music composed by Akira Ifukube (1914-2006) and performed by Daisuke Suzuki.I found the sounds of this guitar music to be very relaxing and beautifully played. The recording itself is excellant and you can hear every string and finger movement very clearly. It sounds as if you are in the concert hall without any ambient noise to distract you.
