Notes and Editorial Reviews

When Simone Rubino plays Johann Sebastian Bach on the marimba, his music seems to be released of temporality, more so than in its original form. It sounds like the music of the spheres: ancient and brand new ... and more than ever when the prizewinner of numerous competitions (including the International ARD Competition) combines Bach with works of the 20th and 21st centuries. Virtuosic, iridescent pieces for marimba, vibraphone and much more. The finest structures and shades are transparent, for example, in "Esegesi" by Roberto Bocca, which is presented here as a world premiere recording. Percussion pleasure at its finest, and not just for fans of drums and Bach. “What should one praise more: the incredible dexterity with which Read more he executes thunderous rolls on the drums, tom-toms and bongos, makes the claves clang or dances along the xylophone? Or the sensitivity with which the gongs, chimes and cymbals blend with the high strings and delecate woodwinds?” (Isabel Herzfelt, Der Tagesspiegel) Read less
