These are previously unrecorded works by Kazuo Yamada, one of Japan's most influential composers and conductors, which have remained unknown due to Yamada's refusal to allow his pre-war orchestral music to be published after 1945. Yamada's orchestral style reflects the influence of Mahler and Richard Strauss, but in his Grand Treasure Op. 20 he makes telling use of Japanese instruments, adding emotional intensity to his moving lament for the wartime dead.  We feature this new release alongside other lesser-known works by Japanese composers from the extensive Naxos Japanese Classics series.  For a limited time, take 10% off any release in this feature.
