Ducharme Plays Takemitsu

Canadian guitarist Jérôme Ducharme plays A Piece for Guitar (1991) by Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996). Performed for the Maastricht Guitar Society November 28th 2014.  Nice little piece with the usual spacious beauty and interest in sound that is often associated with Takemitsu. Short and sweet though. The piece was written for the 60th Birthday of Sylvano Bussotti (b.1931), an Italian composer of contemporary music.
