Notes and Editorial Reviews

As the marimba integrates itself further into the modern repertoire, composers are crossing boundaries and writing music once reserved for more prominent solo instruments. In its modern form, the marimba is attracting soloists who are pushing its technical envelope. Its sound is at once unique and mystifying for those who aren't familiar with the warmth and unique timbre that can be created by a skilled performer.
MARIMBA SPIRITUAL is Katarzyna Mycka's debut recording. She leads the listener into a wonderful world of sounds by some of the most prominent composers writing for the marimba. Classics by legendary percussion composers Keiko Abe, Ney Rosauro, and Paul Smadbeck are represented, as well as lesser-known works by Matthias Schmitt
