There are several other versions of November Steps…  but the Saito Kinen Orchestra, a Japanese all-star group that assembles every summer, understands the music better than any Western competitor, and Seiji Ozawa turns in a fully committed performance. In Eclipse, for biwa and shakuhachi duet, soloists Yokoyama and Tsuruta work together in a seamlessly woven semi-improvised musical conversation that aptly suggests timelessness.” - Classicstoday.com
