The third album for the first time in two years will be released in the up-and-coming ensemble “Tokyo Sextet”, which is formed with a gorgeous face that is active as a principal player and soloist of the major orchestra.
The debut work "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" arranged modern French colors, and the second album "Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche" arranged German works. With these CDs, they are acclaimed from various fields by developing exquisite ensembles that cannot be considered to be played with only six types of instruments in the colorful sounds and craftsmanship of the same generation.
And on this long-awaited CD, Schumann's piano quintet and Brahms's piano quartet (both arranged by sextet) were performed.
The original song is a masterpiece of chamber music played with piano and string instruments. We are very interested in the willingness of “Tokyo Sextet” that asks listeners with a new appeal.
from Golden Hearts Publications Global Store:
“Tokyo Sextet” is a group of top Japanese performers. This is the long-awaited 3rd album that follows the highly acclaimed debut board and 2nd album.
This time is Schumann! Brahms! that's all! But, as expected, Tokyo Sextet, these two songs will change the air around the listener.
I feel like "am I really alive in the 21st century?", so I feel like transcending time and space. I think it's close to the feeling of watching a good old movie. I recommend listening to it with sealed headphones to immerse yourself in this worldview.
The accuracy of the ensemble is getting more and more polished, and I can't wait to see the next album as soon as possible.
Regardless of the type of instrument, it is a must for all performers and of course for classic fans. Super recommended!
