Hashimoto Symphony No 1 Symphonic Symphony Orchestra Ryusuke Numajiri Naxos

Qunihico HASHIMOTO (1904-1949)

Symphony No. 1 in D

Symphonic Suite ‘Heavenly Maiden and Fisherman’

Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra/ Ryusuke Numajiri

Continuing our groundbreaking Japanese Classics series, Naxos presents another first recording: two orchestral works by Qunihico Hashimoto.

One of the leading Japanese composers in the first half of the twentieth century, Qunihico Hashimoto studied with Egon Wellesz in Vienna before meeting Schoenberg in Los Angeles when he was returning to Japan. His music reflects elements of late romanticism, expressionism and impressionism, as well as of the traditional music of Japan.

The Symphony No.1 was written in celebration of the 2600th anniversary of the foundation of Japan, with a first movement depicting the long history of the country, a second making insistent use of a folk-melody, and a third consisting of variations and a fugue on material derived from a Gagaku-like ceremonial song. The ballet music Heavenly Maiden and Fisherman is based on material from a traditional Japanese Noh play.
