Shoutout to my boy Tomita. An excellent preimagining of Debussy, to make it for the future. It's as classicla sounding as it is future sounding. Tomita has done an excellent job at uniting both into one album. I have this album on Vinyl, CD, and FLAC because its such a wonderful listening experience!
I remember the show Jack Horkheimer's "Stargazer" on PBS always closed with a piece of music from this album. It was one of my favorite parts of the show, hearing that music. I was thrilled when I came across the cd in a record shop one day! Firebird was the only other Tomita album I had heard, and I have owned it for years.
I've fallen asleep to this record at least one night a week for years. One of my all time favorites -- Tomita's arrangement of "Clair De Lune", in particular, is, to my ears, one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.
