CD Reviews

One of the most interesting CDs I've ever heard
Koto Player | 08/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD delivers some of the most interesting and palatable modern compositions I've ever heard by Toshio Hosokawa, one of the most exciting composers of our time who is combining both Western and Japanese techniques.

This music is unlike anything most people have ever heard - the adjective I would use to describe this music is "shimmering". It's appealing when you listen to it, but the more you listen to it, the more interesting it becomes. Of course the performances by Mayumi Miyata and Stefan Hussong are world class.

If you are looking for free reed or Japanese traditional music that is elegant and interesting but not overwhelming, I very highly recommend this CD."
