Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"A duo live performance with Osamu Mishiba, the finale of Tatsuya Yoshida's popular series "Piano 10th Game" at "Jirokichi" in Koenji, will be released! Includes the full length of the unusual "improvised performance with a theme from the customer" in the "Piano 10th Game" series. Mishiba's splendid piano melodies, which seem to be composed in a way that is hard to imagine improvised, are intertwined with meticulous drums, and at times a fierce battle between the keyboard and percussion instruments unfolds. In addition, Mishiba's elegant and transcendental classical piano solos are layered with Yoshida's fierce drums, and covers of classic masterpieces such as Beethoven and Bartok are also recorded."-Magaibutsu
