Claude Debussy and Ryuichi Sakamoto on spotify

Sometimes you just don’t have to write to much about a playlist;
Couple of days ago a Boris Berman CD with piano music by Debussy (colorful Suite Bergamasque in this recording!) pared fine with the music of Japanese pop/film composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
This article in the Telegraph actually showed the connection between both composers, an article I read after the serendipity connection I had between the two CD’s.
Funny. Hope you will enjoy the music too!
