This is a re-issue of Sakamoto's 1996 (natch) album where new and old compositions are arranged in stripped down violin and piano style. Its unremittingly glorious and within the first 6 tracks yiou can hear some of Sakamoto's best and well known works, 'Rain' sparkles in this guise if never quite approaching the doomy majesty of the original. 'Bibo no Aozora' features lovely undulating violins and descending pretty piano and there are very few words left to say about the beautiful 'Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence' with its keening eastern melody, here played out on tumbling rolling piano chords and lonesome high violin. This record serves as a wonderful starting point to the work of Sakamoto. If, like me, life and time gets in the way and trawling through his catalogue seems too much of a daunting task, then here you have a beautifully presented collection of some of his finest moments. Wonderful (neo) classical compositions of the highest order.
