Romance

Composed by: Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996)
Arranged by: Felix Salazar

With a body of piano work that spans 43 years, "Romance" (1949) is the earliest surviving piece by Toru Takemitsu. Unknown and unheard during his lifetime, it prefaces what would become Takemitsu’s signature style – slow pulsations and long decays punctuated with unexpected outbursts of color.
