Despite cellist Peter Dixon's earnest performance, this concerto is peculiarly undramatic, meandering, and disappointing. The BBC Philharmonic, directed by Sachio Fujioka, is sumptuous in these performances, and Chandos has captured the orchestra with full resonance and depth.
Cello Concerto, Op. 91 'Centaurus Unit' (2003). Solo: Peter Dixon cello. Orchestra: BBC Philharmonic. Conductor: Sachio Fujioka. 4 & 5 November 2003. The Cello Concerto is a dark, pensive work, not for the casual listener. Exemplary sound engineering. This is an offhand and inelegant designation for some singularly elegant music' with Peter Dixon as soloist in this striking work which is deceptive in its apparently innocuous tonality. St John's Choristers are especially sweet and emotive,.

Takashi Yoshimatsu was born in Tokyo and is a largely self-taught composer with a style which has been described as "Neo-Romantic". His music has more Western influence and is less obviously of Japanese origin than his compatriot Toru Takemitsu. The Age of Birds and Chikap are episodic but evocative works which use the full range of orchestral colour without adding extraneous sounds (unlike Rautavaara, for example, whose Concerto for Birds and Orchestra uses taped bird sounds). However, the atmosphere created seems closer to Rautavaara than Messiaen (a great imitator of bird calls). Both works have three movements, and in The Age of Birds they have titles (I. Sky II.
