I'm happily reminded of John Williams, and thus Stravinsky. Very enjoyable, with instrumentation / sound combinations I've never heard before.

Amazing symphony. I also love his piano concerto.

I love the percussion around 17:40 This 20th century stuff is not my cup of tea, but this piece is quite enjoyable.

It's hard to understand how a Japanese composer in 1958 could compose so effectively in the European tradition.

@mANDROna Grove think you are construing the original comment in the most negative way possible. it is likely far more difficult for a westerner to gain recognition in the east than visa versa.

@Zack Wyvern It *is* the European tradition. The Classical tradition *is* the European tradition. That is its roots. You could add the quantifier that it's the "European Classical tradition" because there are other traditions in other countries where their's is considered "classical" -- this includes literature, as well, such as the "classics" such as the Chinese classics or the "sinology" -- but "classical" refers to a very European tradition. Stop trying to wipe away the European roots of the tradition. *You* seem to be the one that is bigoted if you believe that Europeans don't have a right to their own culture.

@mANDROna Grove They are. It comes out in modern classical music a lot. You just don't hear it in pop music.

@mANDROna Grove It's not a "european tradition" anymore. It's a classical tradition. It can be formalized, made into theory, and made universal. "World music" was never formalized, but rather just folk music. If you stop thinking about everything in terms of "what country made it" and start thinking of "music that is structured and can be taught" then you will get your bigoted view out of your head, surely.

because corporations need to keep westerners dumbed down to a certain extent.

While it does sound very "soundtracky'' and a bit John Williams-ish, the work is very interesting, compellingly imaginative and quite ahead of it's time (1958!) in sound architecture. A John Williams work in a similar vein only came out in the 70s (Close Encounters). Who knows who was inspired by who, but Akio definitely was ahead in this work.

From what I've heard, I view Yashiro and Takemitsu as Japan's greatest composers. And, among contemporary composers, Yashiro's pupil Akira Nishimura.

This reminds me of the musical style which was popular around 60-70s.

In the first movement his Messaien really sounds off. Reminds me of Turingalila.

Does anyone hear odd textural echoes of Messaien's "Turangalila" Symphony in the latter half?

That something would remind me so strongly of the American symphonist William Schuman baffles me greatly. Nevertheles...like waves crashing on the beach from different angles.
