Fumio In Stereo

Today is the centennial of composer Fumio Hayasaka. He didn't live very long--died in 1955--but in his short time on Earth not only created some pretty decent stand-alone compositions, he also managed to create the scores for several classic Japanese films, including Kurosawa's Rashomon, Ikiru and Seven Samurai as well as Mizoguchi's Ugetsu and Sansho The Bailiff.
