Format:Audio CD

'The BBC Symphony [Philharmonic] under Sachio Fujioka plays superbly, and given Chandos' nonpareil sound, Yoshimatsu's music lacks for nothing in terms of production or reproduction.'

'Thoughout the disc, the assured playing of the BBC Philharmonic and Sachio Fujioka, like the superbly focussed sound is a pleasure in itself'.
International Record Review

The BBC Philharmonic tackles all three pieces with virtuosity and panache and the recording captures the full panoply of the Hollywoodstyle orchestration.
BBC Music Magazine

`Impressive works, performances and recording.'
The Guardian on CHAN 9737

`Attractive, semi-ambient sounds and New Age dreaminess are the basis of these two immaculately executed, picturesque and listener-friendly works.'
Classic FM Magazine on CHAN 9838


Takashi Yoshimatsu was born in Tokyo, Japan, and like Toru Takemitsu, the composer generally considered to be Japan's greatest in the western classical style, did not receive formal musical training while growing up. He left the faculty of technology of Keio University in 1972, and joined an amateur band named NOA as a keyboard player, emulating the music of Pink Floyd. He became interested in the jazz and progressive rock scenes, particularly in the possibilities being explored through electronic music.

He was a fan of the Walker Brothers and the Ventures when he was 13, but symphonies of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky fascinated him when he was 14. Since then he composed a number of pieces before making his name with the serialist 'Threnody for Toki' in 1981.
