Ryuichi Sakamoto Piano Works 3
Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto
In Appreciation and Admiration
Chitose Okashiro, piano
"My music appears before me
wearing a different costume in a different look,
and it is a very refreshing experience to me."
(Ryuichi Sakamoto, from liner note)
"It certainly could be said that the recording of Sakamoto's works, performed by the composer himself, exists as 'the original' firmly established with the power of a single absolutely correct authority. Okashiro's performance of Sakamoto's works will challenge this and force the reconsideration of the supremacy of the original."
(Jun'ichi Komuna, from liner note)
