Toru Takemitsu – Cross Hatch (1982)

Performed by Haruka Fujii and Sam Solomon in March of 2020.

Cross Hatch was commissioned by and dedicated to Hiroyuki Iwaki.  The duet for marimba and vibraphone is the essence of Takemitsu, packing all the beauty and expression of his larger works into the span of a minute and a half.
