Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two noted Japanese conductors, Hiroyuki Iwaki and Kazuyoshi Akiyama lead compelling performances of music by Shin-Ichiro Ikebe, a composer known to Western audiences mainly through his scores for the films of Akira Kurosawa. The album features the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Shin-Ichiro Ikebe's Symphony No. 4, the tone poem " Les Bois Tristes" or "Forrest of Sorrow" and Symphony No. 7 with the unusual subtitle "To the sympathy for a drip".
