REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, p.241) - "This disc offers in effect a survey of Japanese solo piano music, from the first piece written for the instrument in Japan (Rentaro Taki's `Minuet' of 1900) to `Just for Me', written in 1981 by Ryuichi Sakamoto (b 1952)....Moriko Ogawa, who was trained in Tokyo and at Juilliard, plays it beautifully, with a lovely color palette and an exquisite sense of touch and timing...."
