A spectacular assembly of Takemitsu's finest work for film (selected by him personally before his untimely death). Takemitsu was able to work in a wide variety of styles - pop arrangements, electronic music, modern choral melodies, his own unique avant-garde and poetic orchestral writing - and always produced notable and well-crafted composition; possibly the fact that he was largely self-taught enabled him to bypass many of the inhibitions of composers who are members of "schools.

Complete your Toru Takemitsu collection. Funeral Music (From Black Rain). Waltz (From The Face Of Another). Music From Banished Orin. Music From Kaseki (The Fossil).

Tōru Takemitsu (武満 徹 Takemitsu Tōru, October 8, 1930–February 20, 1996) was a Japanese composer of music, who explored the compositional principles of Western classical music and his native Japanese tradition both in isolation and in combination. He also listened to jazz from his father's ample collection. Takemitsu was largely self-taught in music.

Music By: Toru Takemitsu. Record Label: Victor. Running Time: (Total). Released to the day of the tenth anniversary of the death of composer Toru Takemitsu, this seven disc box set features re-releases of the early 1990's "Film Music by Toru Takemitsu", which themselves were mostly re-releases of LPs issued in 1980 although with a few contemporary films added in like Black Rain. The set contains suites from the films, rather than full tracks, making this hard to recommend to people unless they are stark fans of the "sample" compilations that used to be more common in the heyday of CD releases
