REVIEW

August 31, 2006

Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996) did film scores for 93 movies. These COMPLETE TAKEMITSU EDITION 3, Music For Movies sets give us many of these soundtracks. I have personally never seen the movies from this set so can not say how well the music interacts with what's on screen. My opinions will be based on stand alone listing.

Disc 1 works very well as a stand alone listening experience. I found the music to be very relaxing to listen to. Very nice pieces of varying tempo and instrumentation. Disc 2 is also a very pleasant listen with a few tracks sounding a lot like the song "A Very Good Year". Nothing on either disc really reached out and grabbed me but nothing made me want to turn it off either. Two very pleasant listening experiences.
