Ryuichi Sakamoto is an internationally renowned music composer, born in Tokyo, Japan in 1952. Over the last three decades he has worked on numerous collaborative, solo- and film albums, winning numerous awards for his contributions to the world music industry. Sakamoto found a particular appeal in electronic music, later experimenting with a number of genres such as New Wave, Ambient and Minimalism. Having been educated in ethnic music, particularly South Asian and African music, Sakamoto began his career playing the piano, creating patterns, phrases and innovative arrangements before finally joining his first commercial electronic pop band in 1978, called Yellow Magic Orchestra. On this new recording Dutch pianist Jeroen van Veen plays covers of Sakamoto's music, a unique experience that open the listener's mind providing space to think and create. Another ground breaking concept by Jeroen van Veen, who previously released immensely successful sets of music by Einaudi, Yiruma, Tiersen, Richter, Adams, Glass, Nyman and many more.

"This is an interesting and enjoyable set. I would not recommend that you sit down and listen to the whole set at once...this was an enjoyable listen. Brilliant Classics should be applauded for bringing us such a comprehensive set as this." MusicWeb
