What the critics are saying:

"Itadakimasu is a fine sampler of Larner's many talents."

—Dan Warburton, Signal to Noise

"Improvising alongside other instruments, Larner extends the koto's every single parameter."

—Elliot Smith, The Wire

"Itadakimasu features Brett Larner, one of the leading koto players in avant-garde music, in ten duets with as many musicians. Therefore, his adaptability and range of expression is very well-illustrated."

—François Couture, AllMusic.com
