Dear Pianophilians,

some months ago this year I came across a composer from Japan that I would like to introduce you to: Toru Yaskawa (*1960) (I think the correct transcription would be Yasukawa but his transcription is phonetically correct).

Yaskawa is a contemporary and very prolific composer; there could easily be thousands of single pieces by him. From 2004 on he composes a series called Shapes of a Dream (ゆめのかたち/Yume no katachi) which today contains 1,000 and one pieces...

His music is very pleasing and uses standard Jazz harmony which makes it quite attractive to play and to hear. However, almost every single piece has a melancholic and dream-like sound which makes them not very diversified (the melancholic aspect doesn't bother me...). But for some evening-entertainment-music which doesn't require a high level of virtuosity and can easily be sightread, this is perfect!

Here is Yaskawa's own website:

A small selection of works I think are very beautiful (most of them can be obtained online on sheetmusicplus):
