KUNIKO

KUNIKO is one of the world's most talented percussion soloists in today's contemporary and classical music scenes.
profile & recordings >>

Arranged for solo marimba, Kuniko gives a unique perspective of these hugely famous and intellectually challenging works. Kuniko's trademark is her highly sensitive touch, particularly with wooden instruments such as marimba, which gives these interpretations an extremely stripped-down yet natural, organic feel.

The beautiful acoustic of the medieval Jaani Kirik (St John's Church) in Estonia creates the ideal sound space for Kuniko's arrangements. Linn's Chief Producer Philip Hobbs commented: 'Kuniko has the most clear and intelligent voice for Bach, which is both logical and deeply musical. I find the interpretations completely mesmerizing. And the sound is simply sensational - so clear, but so deep! It is a wonderful acoustic but it never gets in the way.'

Kuniko won praise for her performance of Bach's G minor violin sonata at the 1995 Leigh Howard Stevens International Marimba Competition, particularly for her lack of marimba rolls in the Adagio. Throughout her 2016 series of concerts ('Reich at 80' and 'Bach To Contemporary Music') Kuniko has performed works from the new album giving fans worldwide a chance to hear these works live.

This is an exciting new take on these perpetually popular works.
