Symphony Live in Istanbul

(CD - Domo #PWDOM 732152)

Review by

The prolific Japanese new age composer turns in a symphonic live performance here that contains newly reworked versions of eight of his most popular pieces. Recorded over two nights in March of 2014 at the Halic Congress Center in Istanbul, Turkey, Kitaro is joined by a symphony orchestra on pieces like "Heaven & Earth" from the soundtrack to the Oliver Stone film of the same name and his ambitious "Silk Road" theme.
