Traditional Japanese music is so tranquil and melancholy, like that of some Western baroque composers, that for me it's best in small doses. The very slow development of the longer pieces here, all with three instruments or fewer, is intriguing - but tiring if you're not in the right mood. There *is* development though, which means - I would have thought - this is not ideal background music for meditation. The last track is a modern composition with a much more Western feel, though still within the frame of authentic Japanese music.

Overall, a good value album which is what it says it is.

This is a wonderful introduction to traditional Japanese music. The slow pace of the opening pieces, and the delicacy, are in keeping with the best of Japanese culture. I would recommend it to any lovers of Oriental music.

Ancient and timeless this music is extremely peaceful and restful to listen to. Just close your eyes and be transported to shimmering hills and groves of Cherry Blossom
