Notes and Editorial Reviews

The composer Anders Koppel writes: "My concerto was written in 1995, commissioned by the IPCL as a set piece for the finals of the 1995 International Percussion Competition in Luxembourg. I was named a member of the jury and it was a great experience for me to the many gifted young talents during the first two rounds. Four participants made it to the finals: two extremely skillful Japanese musicians, a Bulgarian and a young Polish girl studying in Stuttgart and Salzburg. She amazed everybody in the audience as well as on the jury - especially me, the composer - when she premiered my Concerto in the finals. That was Katarzyna Mycka. With her musical understanding and breadth of view, her flawless technique and her incredible footwork, she Read more already delivered a deeply satisfying rendering of the music. And she has been developing her interpretation of the Concerto in many concerts in both Germany and Poland ever since." Eckhard Kopetzki writes: "My Concerto dedicated to Katarzyna Mycka and written in 1999, places the main emphasis on the manifold possibilities of the marimba. It is therefore a typical concerto with a cadenza in the first movement and another cadenza at the end of the last movement accompanied by the orchestra". Karl-Heinz Koper wrote his Samba Classique in 1969 as the final movement of a Duet Concerto for Mandolin, Guitar and Orchestra of String plucked instruments. The version for 2 marimbas, string orchestra and percussion followed in 1991. Keiko Abe writes: "Recently I received a letter from Katarzyna Mycka, a widely acclaimed marimbist whom I anticipate will be one of the strongest promoters of the marimba of this upcoming generation. She requested to perform Prism Rhapsody II with her fellow marimbist, Franz Bach, for her new CD. I composed the second marimba part in response to this idea." Read less
