Thank you so much for this program. Ryuichi Sakamoto has been my favorite film composer for quite awhile. I have lived in his score for The Sheltering Sky for decades (I guess) now and I must admit that my travels to Morocco and especially to Tunisia (with days spent in the Sahara) were greatly enhanced by the emotions felt upon first hearing Mr. Sakamoto's music. I feel fortunate to have attended a solo performance that Ryuichi gave in Los Angeles at the Palace when I returned from my first trip to Asia. Thank you. Thank you.
