He has contributed many remarkable works to the orchestral, chamber, piano and choral music repertoires. He is a present-day romantic, and one of considerable intelligence. His music reflects two worlds, the “melodic wind round” where all is delicacy, elegance and sensuality, and the “rhythmic wind round” which abounds with constructive, centrifugal energy. His recent creative activity is devoted to effecting a unification of these two worlds.

Remarkably, his orchestral works have been domestically performed by the NHK Symphony Orchestra and others , and in oversea countries they also have been performed by some of the leading orchestras, such as the Suisse Romande, Netherlands Radio, BBC Scottish, Radio France, Berlin, Nürunberg, etc. In particular, he is one of the most popular composers in the world of choral music, and his pieces have been constantly performing all over the country.

In 2011, he had an individual concert I for violin pieces. In 2013, concert II for chamber pieces. In 2018, he was invited as a theme composer to N.Y by MFJ(Music From Japan) to hold a individual concert including Piano Quintett (new piece), String Quartet No.2-Asura, Choral Concerto for Mixed Choir. Those were deeply impressed for audience and critics.

He has held a guest Professor at the Tokyo College of Music, a Professor at the graduate school of Toho Gakuen.
