David's Review Corner, February 2014

My sparse acquaintance with the name of Kazuo Yamada comes entirely in the world of conducting, this being my first knowledge of his life as a major composer. My recognition of him comes from the fact he was the first native musician to form a symphony orchestra in Japan, which today we know as the celebrated NHK Symphony. For me the work that marks him out among major 20th century composers comes with Grand Treasure or more aptly described as ‘the Emperor’s people’, and is probably a hidden commentary on the thousands of people who died in the Second World War…in Dmitry Yablonsky [the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra] obviously have a conductor sympathetic to the composer. The recording sound is very good. © 2014 David’s Review Corner
