Basil Athanasiadis’ work is original in terms of research and creative work which is on an area of study that has been neglected. The compositions are of a high technical level of accomplishment and are of an unusual and absorbing nature, revealing a true understanding of Japanese culture and a deeply-felt response to their traditions and art forms. This is an interesting basis for other composers who might also wish to explore East/West culture connections.
