I lack any Takemitsu in my collection. What are 1 or 2 recommendable recordings?

I disagree.  I think the Brilliant Classics compilation is far preferable in terms of performance quality to that Naxos disc.  Draško's choices are not bad for a starter collection, though I als would recommend this disc for chamber works:

The Naxos disc is a fine recording but not familiar with the Brilliant, available here only as an import it looks like.  The Brilliant does not look to have any of the work from the 70s, Flock Descends being both one of my favorite pieces and his most 'important'.

Here is another good disc of orchestral music, with the 1957 Requiem combined with two late works

How bout that Knussen disc on Virgin?

Either that, or 'Quotation of Dream' on DG, also with Knussen, I believe.

Those two, or the 'Gemeaux' CD on Denon would be my top three.



...maybe Viola Concerto on Philips, with an early,Japanese work...
