    Symphony (1958)

    I. Prelude: Adagio - Moderato [0:00]
    II. Scherzo: Vivace [7:22]
    III. Lento [11:13]
    IV. Adagio - Allegro energico [23:54]

    A large-scale orchestral work by Japanese composer Akio Yashiro (1929-1976), a student of Saburo Moroi and Qunihico Hashimoto. Although he was solidly situated in the Japanese modernist school of composers, Yashiro was highly skeptical of avant-garde trends in music and grounded his music in somewhat more traditional forms, drawing inspiration from figures such as Beethoven, Dukas and Messiaen. When John Cage visited Japan in 1962, Yashiro repeatedly heckled his performance, saying, "This is no music!" He had earned high praise from Messiaen and Florent Schmitt as a student at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, and he became widely recognized as one of the leading Japanese composers. However, Yashiro's perfectionism hindered his productivity over the course of his career, so that his oeuvre remained quite small. The 1958 Symphony was commissioned by the Japan Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. It consists of four nearly-continuous movements, which are carefully united by a few motifs, most notably a three note B-F-F sharp pattern and the B-F or B flat-F intervals. Some of the first-movement material was taken from an unfinished work that Yashiro began composing as a student on the subject of Oscar Wilde's Salome.

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

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

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

@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.

Then why aren't more westerners influenced by more world music? It's more that European music is seen as paramount and superior which is a shame.

The entrance of the violins at 15:28 is absolutely eerie.  Beautiful composition.
