Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Naxos has more or less cornered the market when it comes to introducing classical music by Japanese composers, offering high quality recordings of fine performances of musical works otherwise well nigh impossible to come across. This CD, featuring three later pieces by Yamada Kosaku (1886-1965, here oddly transliterated Yamada Koscak) is certainly no exception. A pivotal figure in Japan's musical history as the country's first homegrown classical composer, Yamada Kosaku deserves attention both on these terms and by the simple fact that he composed just plain excellent music in its own right. And if the prior CD Kôsçak Yamada: Symphony in F major 'Triumph and Peace' showcased Yamada's early promise, this CD demonstrates his work at its mature peak.

The first selection is the latest chronologically: Yamada's "Nagauta Symphony" of 1934. This is a surprisingly successful synthesis incorporating a traditional nagauta piece of 1857 whose shamisens and drums oddly coalesce with a western orchestra. At first, one might be tempted to construe this as a transitional form, but such is not the case. The idea of combining the two musical traditions was in fact a highly unconventional one difficult technically to pull off--and due to his own particular musical upbringing, traditional Japanese music was about as "exotic" to Yamada as it would be to the average American. So this is in fact a creatively eccentric composition on his part.
