AKIRA IFUKUBE: Works for Piano, Volume 2

The stunning cover for AKIRA IFUKUBE: Works for Piano, Volume 2.

Reiko Yamada, a former student of Maestro Ifukube's (and a special guest at G-FEST XIV in 2007) has recently completed a brand-new CD of the master musician's classical compositions. As of now, it's available in the U.S. from the Sanseido Japanese bookstore in Chicago and can be ordered here:

100 E. Algonquin Rd.,
Arlington Heights, IL 60005
(847) 956-0155

Details such as pricing are unavailable at this time, but when we're talking about Akira Ifukube, who would dare put a price on his genius?

More information about the release will become available on Maestro Ifukube's official English-language Web site as soon as possible. Fans of Mr. Ifukube, and of classical music in general, will certainly be pleased with the new release!


  1. As a fan of the musical scores of Ifukube I appreciate this update/heads-up post Brett! He is "the" Maestro indeed. Now I know what to ask my wife to get me for Christmas :)

  2. Ha ha! Great idea! Now that's what I call a kaiju Christmas!
