The works of Takemitsu are musical Zen gardens. In To the Edge of Dream, a guitar shimmers with a harp, celesta, vibraphone and glockenspiel. In Spectral Canticle, a guitar, violin and orchestra echo grasshopper time, i.e. the season of solitude, late summer. The soloist is Timo Korhonen and Johannes Gustavsson wields the baton.
