Description: Arrangements of Debussy for string orchestra share space with Takemitsu’s somber Funeral Music (from a 1989 Japanese film about Hiroshima survivors in the aftermath of the Bomb), the jazzy and dissonant Music of Training and Rest (from a 1959 documentary short about a Puerto Rican boxer) and the better-known 1987 tribute to the recently deceased Russian film-maker Andrei Tarkovsky. Scottish Ensemble; Jonathan Morton.
