Complete Piano Works - Takemitsu

Composer(s):
  • Toru Takemitsu (1930-)

Australian pianist Roger Woodward is a Takemitsu advocate of long standing, and it isn’t possible to imagine more sensitive or technically accomplished performances of this sensitive and challenging music … (His performances) sound so effortless and idiomatic as to even surpass Peter Serkin’s old RCA recordings. It is only March as I write this, but I think I’ve already found my nomination for the record of the year. American Record Guide
