Ryuichi Sakamoto | Opus

Ryuichi Sakamoto, who died in 2023, was one of Japan’s foremost composers and musicians for nearly five decades. From his work with Yellow Magic Orchestra to iconic scores for films such as Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence, his work has influenced artists across the globe. During his last few years, Sakamoto was unable to perform live concerts, and so he allowed his son, Neo Sora, to film one final performance. Recorded over a week in late 2022 at NHK Studio in Tokyo, Opus is an intimate concert film featuring only Sakamoto and his beloved piano.
