CRYSTALLINE

A GLITTERING WORLD OF SOUND - Karen Tanaka is one of the leading Japanese composers of her generation. The purity of sound, the sensuality and intensity in her music has gained her a large audience, and the release of this recording will make much of Tanaka's piano composition available on one album. Pianist Signe Bakke gives us an interesting overview of the complexity and yet the integrity of Tanaka's music as it has evolved through the twenty years of her career that this disc covers.

Crystalline, Water Dance, Northern Lights, Lavender Field, Techno Etudes, Children of Light (Excerpts) and Crystalline II.
