Makoto's new release on Evolution Music Group
Evolution Music Group is pleased to present Makoto Nakura's newest recording, Bach Parallels.
"Bach's music continues to be the source of our imagination after nearly 300 years. It was a true joy to see that this imagination bore the fruits of new music which embraces the sensitivities of our time and I am excited to hand them to the next generation. People might think of classical music as the music of the past. Rather, I would like to send a message that we are travelling in the midst of a current of classical music which pulsates as living music." - Makoto Nakura
