    Default Tan Dun - Eight Memories in Watercolour

    You might find some pleasure in a number of the piano pieces by the late Toru Takemitsu

    Some of the quieter movements from Messiaen's Vingt Regard sur l'Enfant Jésus:
    Regard XI, Première Communion de la Vierge

    Older school -- (both Debussy and Messiaen were an enormous influence on Takemitsu):
