Listen to Murakami’s Absolutely On Music playlist

Enjoy a selection of the music discussed in Haruki Murakami and Seiji Ozawa's Absolutely On Music

Here you’ll find a selection of the music that Haruki Murakami and Seiji Ozawa listen to and discuss throughout Absolutely On Music.

Please note that this is not a comprehensive list of every composition in the book, but rather a sampling of the pieces mentioned. We hope that it will give you a taste of the breadth and range of their musical conversations; and perhaps inspire you to listen to more of the music that they talk about in the book.
Should you choose to seek out a track or performance that is not included here, we invite you to share it with us, and the rest of Haruki’s fans, on his Facebook page.
