I don't know about you but I have never met a single work by Takemitsu that I didn't like (even his more abstract, experimental music..and some of the best examples were written for film). His guitar music is, not surprisingly, both beautiful and steeped in delicate simplicity. Leo Brouwer's reverence for Takemitsu takes shape here in two homage works, both of which provide a sense of energy to the otherwise meditative program. Interestingly, the last two tracks taken from Takemitsu's "Twelve Songs for Guitar" are both songs by the Beatles! Takemitsu pulls it off deftly and these arrangements are both winsome and haunting.
Enjoy my fellow sound travelers!
