New Music From Japan [coll] – [Odyssey]
This old LP has very nicely recorded orchestral works from three 20th Century composers from Japan. Akira Miyoshi was born in 1933 and studied in the 1950’s in Paris, before returning to Japan. Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996) had many influences such as John Cage and musique concrete; he composed many film scores including Akira Kurosawa’s Ran. Toshiro Mayuzumi (1929- 1997) also studied in Paris and also wrote many film scores. Very original, often delicate, very listenable, western music with Japanese inflections.Might sound cinematic, but which came first?
PGM: LP is monaural.
