Tristan Murail: Mandragore

"(In Taka Kigawa's performance,) Ravel's influence is unmistakable in the graceful shimmer and sparkling textures of Mr. Murail's 'Mandragore' (1993)." - Allan Kozinn, The New York Times

"The two works of Boulez (Incises, Douze Notations) and the one by Murail (Mandragore) are descendants of Debussy's in their insistence on mysterious elements, though the two personalities are markedly different, Murail being more consistently playful in his musical notions than the often sterner Boulez. Kigawa seems to know them both intimately." - Barry L. Cohen, New Music Connoisseur
