Thank you for your message and for taking
the trouble to do a Japanese translation.

I believe the notes for the Sony CD (SRCR 2261)
"The Scent of Great Britain" were prepared
by Mr Hirai in Nishinomiya, with a little help
from me on the fax machine. He is very reliable
source of information about the clarinet world,
especially to do with Japan and provides a
regular column for "The Clarinet". I would like him
to accept some credit for his extremely thorough

This Sony CD of English music contains a hand
written note from my teacher Pamela Weston.
Otherwise unfortunately, except for Victor VCCC-170
(all French music), which also has a very short note
in English, the CDs of Mr Akasaka have not yet been
prepared for export, having notes only in Japanese.
maybe there are future plans.

I have 4 of them:
Ophelia EMI TOCZ 9269
Bernstein Sonata - Stravinsky 3 Pieces -
Yoshimatsu 4 Pieces in Bird Shape -
Nagao Ophelia - Rabaud Solo de concours -
Sarasate Gypsy Mood - Horowitz Sonatina

Orange Note ON 3007
Messager Solo de concours - Cahuzac Cantilene -
Camus Badinerie - Bozza Bucolique -
Templeton Sonata No 2 - Debussy Rhapsodie etc., -
Pierne Canzonetta - Bartok 3 Folksongs -
Weiner 2 Movements -St Saens Romance
and 2 anon. dances with double bass added

Victor VICC 170
Francaix Theme and variations -
Dautremer Recitative and Impromptu -
St Saens Sonata - Contant "For Clarinet"
Debussy Petite Piece - Damase Sonata

Sony SRCR 2261
Finzi Bagatelles - Simon and Garfunkel/Trad. Scarborough Fair
Hurlstone 4 Characteristic Pieces
Lennon and McCartney "Fool on the Hill"
Templeton Sonata No 1 - Arnold Sonatina
Irish trad. Londonderry Air

Tatasuka Akasaka is certain a player
that more of us should hear - although
I am not an enthusiast of the superstar
publicity machine to be strictly honest.
