"Gemeaux" (1971-1986) is one of Takemitsu's grandest works in terms of musical arc, scoring and length of gestation. It is written for two orchestras with two conductors, and with solo trombone at one orchestra and solo oboe at the other. As half of it was written during Takemitsu's "modernist apogee" of the turn of the '70s, we find a host of extended techniques, and at one point the soloists even speak through the mouthpieces of their instruments. As the other half of the work belongs to Takemitsu's late period, we find a successful of elegant self-contained gestures, his musical "gardens". The synthesis of two creative periods, however, makes for a piece singular in its impact in Takemitsu's oeuvre.

'With “Orion” Lemongrass presents itself at its best. A flawless, top-class performance with a fresh and unadulterated spirit, which appears with a strong and unrestrained sense of joy and passion. Summery lightness leads the way, skilfully brought to life with a wealth of stylistic and musical means. While “Kyoto Garden” recurrently documents the fascination for Japanese-Asian culture, “Aldebaran” is a deep research into the unfathomable universe, which perfectly characterizes the atmosphere of previous Lemongrass releases. According to Greek mythology, Artemis moved the hunter “Orion” as a constellation to the sky, where he still portrays the beautiful Pleiades. Similarly, Lemongrass could end up with this timelessly beautiful album at the musical firmament. But most definitely, it cemented its place in the highest echelons of electronic listening music. '

The shakuhachi (尺八、しゃくはち) is a Japanese end-blown flute. It was originally introduced from China into Japan in the 8th century and underwent a resurgence in the early Edo Period. The shakuhachi is traditionally made of bamboo, but versions now exist in ABS and hardwoods. It was used by the monks of the Fuke school of Zen Buddhism in the practice of suizen (吹禅, blowing meditation). The instrument is normally tuned to the minor pentatonic scale…
