Toru Takemitsu - All in twilight

Takemitsu (1930-1996) was a Japanese composer, whom I regard as one of the best of the 20th century. His soundscapes were influenced by Debussy, Messiaen, and Japanese traditional music, and are without exception stunning. For today's post I selected his All in twilight for solo guitar from 1987.
