Yoshimatsu: Piano Concerto "Memo Flora", Etc.

"The style is international pastel: quiet, tonal, cool. Yoshimatsu’s concerto is delicately melodic and playful. Strongest are the elegiac And Birds Are Still, and While an Angel Falls into a Doze..., with Pärt-like textures..." --BBC Music Magazine

"The more accesible end of contemporary, composition, with congenial performances." --Classic CD

"...Excellent performances and sound engineering add to the beauty of this intriguing disc." --The Ottawa Citizens Week. Performance ****  Sound *****

"Manchester Camerata make their debut on the Chandos label with an interesting set of works by a living Japanese composer ... the real discovery is Yoshimatsu’s While An Angel Falls Into A Doze. Written this year, it’s a remarkable peice and reveals the Camerata at their best." --Manchester Evening News
