Takemitsu, Toru - Corona/For Away/Piano Distance/Undisturbed Rest

Some of us oldsters remember UK Decca's HEAD label, which attempted to market modern classical masters to the 'hip/progressive rock' young'uns in the mid 70s. Did it work? I don't know. But the records were very good, and now they are being reissued, which is cause for celebration. "For Takemitsu, sound can be beautiful without being significant, can signify beauty without making 'sense'. The quality of the music is thus elusive: it is not something one must necessarily 'understand', but perhaps rather absorb and accept. His works have, all the same, qualities in common: gentle, careful organisation; a sense of simple wonder and freshness; above all, an awareness of the silence that is the accompaniment of sound. To make the void of silence live to make live the infinity of sounds. Sound and silence are equal."
