Portrait - Takashi Miyazaki

Portrait - Love, Ease & Comfort -
Takashi Miyazaki

Takashi Miyazaki accompanies his own singing on a 19th century guitar by Panormo from 1848. Music includes The Sweetheart Tree, Look up at the Night stars, Lachrimae (guitar solo), One million Roses, Graduation, etc. “I play, teach the guitar and sing. I do not always perform in concert halls, so I sometimes use amplification. The theme of this album is love, ease and comfort. Becoming unable to endure the highly strained sound of the modern guitar, I began to play the 19th century guitar without nails, where I find warmth and relaxation. Maybe I am very different from those who seek purely the sound but I do not want to be bound by anything. I want to play music with a free mind in every genre of music.”

You can find more about this CD on Takashi Miyazaki’s own web site.
