I'd just like to comment that track 5, Anger (Original Movement Edit By Fernando Aponte) (3:35), is *not* the original version, which is 5:38 long, even if they may sound similar. The edit is not a simplistic "cutting short" of the piece at its tail-end either; it takes place inconspicuously throughout the piece, such that the resulting edit sounds a lot more restless, and somehow angrier. Credit to Fernando Aponte for the easily glossed-over effort.

Ryuichi Sakamoto, one of Japan’s electronic music pioneers, has his modern classical tracks, <I>Anger/Grief</I>, worked over in a big way. How big? Well, Amon Tobin goes dark and spooky on “Grief”, while Rare Force run “Anger” through some martial hip-hop. Talvin Singh inserts his trademark tabla ‘n’ bass in “Anger” and Chocolate Weasel takes a different approach: it’s a cacophonous din of horns and drums. The original “Anger” is also included -- it’s interesting just to hear how different the remixes are.
