"Though often misunderstood in the West, the works of Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996) deserve attention beyond their native land. Although he wrote most of his music for Western instruments in international contemporary concert style, to be played by performers trained in the European musical tradition, lists and scores of his music have been difficult to obtain. Designed for use by musicians, scholars, and program directors who need compact, understandable information on Takemitsu but who are unfamiliar with Japanese language and music, this bio-bibliography - including sections on his works, performances, and films scores, recordings, and writings - will be invaluable to musicians, scholars, journalists, and music directors alike."--BOOK JACKET.
