Official description:

“From Studio Ghibli to Takeshi Kitano, from cinema to animation with the Universal Symphony Orchestra of Valencia conducted by Adrián Ronda Sampayo.


Joe Hisaishi is recognized as one of the greatest composers of our time. Whether with legendary filmmakers such as Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahashi of Studio Ghibli, or with Takeshi Kitano or Nobuhiko Ôbayashi, the Japanese composer has explored all musical genres to finally show all the magnificence of his orchestral sensitivity.
