Notes and Editorial Reviews
Kuniko’s eagerly awaited second album includes world premiere recordings of the percussionist’s new arrangements of popular works by contemporary composers Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich, and Hywel Davies. Kuniko gave the world premiere performance of Reich’s New York Counterpoint version for marimba in 2012, and the composer praised her performance saying, “Kuniko Kato is a first rate percussionist.”
