Toru Takemitsu is one of the most popular Japenese film- and concert composers. I never saw the movie "An Ocean to Cross" so I can't write something about it.
Takemitsu's style is completely different compared to Akira Ifukube. Here the music mostly is suspenseful with a light religious touch. I think people who like "Ran" will like this score, too.
This Victor CD is made the same way like many other Victor CDs of this time, for example there are optical similarities to "The Last War" and like the Ikuma Dan score this CD is for a long time out-of-print. I' m not sure if it has all of the music , but definitely this score is included in one of the new "Toru Takemitsu Complete Edition Box-sets".
