  • About This Album

    The ten film scores, selected from the vast output of the Japanese film composer Toru Takemitsu, for the Nonesuch film series, "show both his uncanny ability to heighten the emotional context of a celluloid moment," said the New York Times, "and an extraordinary command of styles and resources that make the music fascinating even without the screen images."
