ECM’s ongoing series of recordings with the Munich Chamber Orchestra continues with an intriguing album of new and recent pieces by Japan’s leading composer Toshio Hosokawa. Amongst the compositions are Sakura für Otto Tomek and Cloud and Light, both written in 2008, and Ceremonial Dance (2000). These 21st century pieces are brought together with Landscape V (originally from 1993 and for string quartet, meanwhile expanded into an orchestral version). Three of these feature the shô, a traditional Japanese instrument played by its leading exponent, Mayumi Miyata. Born in Hiroshima in 1955, Hosokawa was initially inspired by Western art music from Schubert to Schoenberg. He went to Germany in the 1970s to study with Isang Yun and Klaus Huber. As he strengthened his standing in European avant-garde he also put down deeper roots in Japanese traditional music. His work increasingly suggests a dialogue between East and West, between the archaic and modern, between ceremonial music and concert music.

Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa, born in 1955, received most of his training in the West, studying with Isang Yun and Klaus Huber in Germany and at the Darmstadt Institute, and he brings a Japanese aesthetic sensibility to the techniques of modernism. Most of the music on this album is notable for its somber, atmospheric tone, a prevailing sense of virtual stasis, and its delicate, finely calibrated scoring. Three of the four pieces feature ……

“Music has to be noble” – Toshio Hosokawa once chose this creed in private conversation in order to distinguish himself from the aesthetics of other composers. To me, this phrase seems to be an apt description of Hosokawa’s music, since he draws its inherent nobility from a thoroughly noble source: “gagaku”, the music of the Japanese imperial court. We are not saying that the composer was familiar with these sounds from childhood. On the contrary, Hosokawa assures us that it was only at an advanced stage of his studies – during his postgraduate work with Isang Yun in Berlin – that he came into contact with gagaku…..
