A Flock Descends into the Pentagonal Garden" (1977) is a single-movement work that may be seen as the first piece of the "late Takemitsu", where he entirely leaves behind the avant-garde style of the early 70s and embarks on that "sea of tonality" that was to last for the rest of his life. Like "Quatrain", it too is based around a single number, in this case five

They perform here with the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Seiji Ozawa. There are four soloists, sections are built with groups of four bars, and the intervals involve the number. It's also something of a hommage to Messiaen, one of Takemitsu's great heros, as TASHI was originally formed to play Messiaen's "Quatuor". Takemitsu says that he dreamed of a flock of white birds entered a pentagonal garden lead by one black bird, and this inspired him to create one of the most strictly serialised pieces of his career. It begins with a pentatonic scale, as if only the black keys of the piano were used, and eventually the seven "white notes" join it.

Takemitsu's adherents will want this automatically, and yet there are other reasons to love Deutsche Grammophon's A Flock Descends into the Pentagonal Garden. These excellent orchestral performances come not only as a revelation to the benefit of Takemitsu, but also for Ozawa, as well. Though even as Valeria strongly recalls the early music of Boulez, there are parts that are more reminiscent of Takemitsu's film music of that time.
