Gilbert French
American Record Guide, October 2002

"From what I've read, this is the first volume in a new series from Naxos. And if the rest is as good as this one, it'll be first class all the way."

Michael Oliver
Gramophone, July 2002

"The orchestra is an excellent one, with much characterful solo playing, and the recording does it full justice."

Yuji Ito
CD Journal

“An amazing series has started.”

“Naxos, the well known label, will release 60 Japanese Classics!”

“It's a shame that this series is being released by a foreign rather than Japanese company, but we can do no more than bow our heads to Naxos.”

Weekly Shincho

“Japanese Classics is a surprise hit.”
“This disc is at the top of the charts in all the biggest shops: HMV Shibuya, Tower Records Shinjuku.”

Kohtaro Tawara

“This CD is perfect... I recommend it to all Japanese to enjoy and to treasure.”

Fumio Uno

“This ambitious project will introduce our cultural heritage to the world. To be honest, it's a shame that this is produced by an overseas company, but I assure you that it achieves a perfect ten in music, performance and sound. I hope that many people will enjoy this special gift.”
