“As a lifelong admirer of Ryūichi Sakamoto’s music, I worked intensively on his compositions in 2022. Although he was ill since long, I was able to get in touch with him while recording. This album is dedicated to him and everyone loving his music. With love and admiration!”
“Ryūichi Sakamoto by Floraleda Sacchi” is an album including 13 pieces for acoustic Harp and live electronics. Selected compositions include music by Sakamoto from the ’70s till 2020 ranging from soundtracks to concert pieces. Mr. Sakamoto himself arranged and always created new settings for his music: in this album Floraleda recorded the latest arrangements released by him, created personal solutions in some tracks and added the electronics in line with the composer’s requests.
This project is the first album for harp dedicated to Ryuichi Sakamoto’s music and it will be released throughout 2023.
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
