Isao Tomita Greatest Hits 1980 - Full Album



Isao Tomita Has Died At The Age Of 84
Posted on May 8, 2016 by synthhead

Synthesist Isao Tomita – best known for a series of albums featuring synthesizer arrangements of classical works – has died at the age of 84.

Tomita (22 April 1932 – 5 May 2016) died of chronic cardiac failure, with family at his bedside.

Tomita started his career as a composer for Nippon Columbia Co.,Ltd where he composed numerous works, including music for the first NHK Taiga drama and animation of Osamu Tezuka.

In the 70’s, he was among the first to introduce the analogue synthesizer to Japan and released numerous ambitious albums like Snowflakes Are Dancing and The Planets.

Here’s an example of Tomita’s work, Debussy’s Arabesque No. 1, from the album... at link below
