Product Description

Product Description

Kuniko Kato,one of the world's most gifted and significant percussionists of her generation. Her debut recording features three premiere arrangements of Steve Reich's works, uniquely arranged for marimba,vibraphone and steel pans. She had the exciting opportunity of collaborating directly with Reich to create this intoxicating recording stamped with his approval. Kuniko's Japanese heritage and virtuosic technique shine through these arrangements,as each instrument weaves in and out of each other,creating luscious waves of sound.It is her direct collaboration with Reich...that adds sheen to the multi-tracked finished article.The Scotsman.A superb album.(four stars)The Nottingham Post.It's a hypnotic and strangely calming experience.The Observer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music played from the heart 26 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
For lovers of music of Steve Reich of better times, this interpretation of Kuniko is a real wonderland. Execution accuracy accompanied by unusual percussion make this work a real gem. In this interpretation, some pieces are missing a certain "coldness" to enrich an exciting tonal depth. It is music played with heart and not just by reading the musical score. In short, a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful interpretations of Steve Reich 27 July 2012
By kim
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this because I love the Steve Reich pieces featured and was interested in the multichannel audio mix on the SACD - it sounds wonderful and each interpretation adds something to my appreciation of these pieces. Buy this - you will not regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Minimal percussion via Reich 1 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
Another superb recording from the Linn label. Make sure you have a SACD player or multi speaker set up to hear the best from this recording. Sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds fantastic. 15 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This SACD has fantastic multichannel sound. There is a clarity which reaches out into the room. The content is probably not to everyone's taste. However if you like a bit of percussion in your music programme from time to time, this will suit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kuniko Kato 7 Sep 2011
By Trevor
Format:Audio CD
Hypnotic, pulsating, driven.
At once saturating the ear with liquid drops of rhythm and beat, then producing an organic flow of metallic musical streams.
Kato gives us a sensual blend of earth water and urban form, just as a Reich envisioned.
4* only because I wanted more!
