Many of the 11 solo piano works recorded here, particularly Piano Distance, For Away, the two Les Yeux Clos, and the two Rain Tree Sketches, have been performed enough to have moved from being novelties to being part of the standard repertoire of twentieth century piano music. One of the values of this extraordinarily fine collection is the perspective it offers on the span of the composer's career - the program is organized chronologically and ranges from Takemitsu's first surviving piano piece, written when he was 19, to his last, written in 1992.

Piano – Kotaro Fukuma. Producer – Bonnie Silver, Norbert Kraft. Recorded at Glenn Gould Studio, CBC, Toronto, Canada, from 26th to 28th July, 2006. Rights Society: GEMA.

This elegantly played selection runs for the most part chronologically, and thus one hears the Debussyan, Scriabinesque idiom of early works such as Lento in due movimenti (1950) and Pause ininterrompue (1952-59) suddenly give place to the aleatory modernism of Piano Distance (1961), only to return straightaway, in more personal form, in For Away (1973), the two Les Yeux clos (1979-89). and the two Rain Tree Sketches (1982-92). His style never changed that much
