A personal view by Bernard Keeffe of the musical life of Japan
Filmed during one long hot summer month last year, this music documentary is a series of vivid impressions of how the Japanese have not only wholeheartedly adopted Western music but are now challenging the West in musical education and in the mass production of music itself. It contains an interview with the famous violin teacher Dr Shinichi Suzuki, who is seen at work with his young pupils - aged from one year seven months upwards.
Made in Japan also shows Japanese composers searching for a national style of expression after a hundred years' exposure to Western traditions. They are finding new ways of using Western orchestral techniques. as well as their own, ancient, traditional instruments.
