Here’s a musical fushion that I’ve never heard before! It’s a combination of Japanese surf rock and classical western European music. Terauchi Takeshi is the musical mind responsible. He formed the eponymous Terauchi Takeshi & the Bunnys in 1966 in Yokohama. Takeshi experimented with other genres, borrowing heavily from classical music. Here’s his mix of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
You can hear more classical tracks at WFMU’s Beware of the Blog, including selections from Brahams, Schubert and Tchaikovsky.
