Hidenori Arai - Euphonium

Hatsumi Shimizu - Piano

-Comment by Yasuhide Ito from liner notes : 

"Lo and behold, this long-awaited album is full of richly expressive music that can surpass the cello or voice. Furthermore, the crowning glory of this album is his own composition, which demonstrates fully the characteristics of the euphonium.

In Japanese, there is a word “NAYUTA” which means novemdecillion, i.e. an extremely large number. The title of this album is “NASOTA”, but “NAYUTA” is a perfect term for Hidenori Arai’s wondrous abilities: his possibilities are infinite. I heartily welcome the birth of this album, which will further expand the world of the euphonium." - Yasuhide Ito
