Joe Hisaishi: First Love

You need not like animes (for which he has written quite a number of pieces of music) in order to love Mamoru Fujisawa’s music. This particular piece is from Tales from Earthsea, a 2006 Japanese animated fantasy film directed by Gorō Miyazaki and produced by Studio Ghibli that is (loosely) based on Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea series.

While possessing a stylistically distinct sound, his music has been known to explore and incorporate different genres, including minimalist, experimental electronic, European classical, and Japanese classical.
