KUNIKO - kuniko plays reich - The Nottingham Post

4 Stars

US minimalist Steve Reich had his doubts when Japanese percussion virtuoso Kuniko Kato proposed arranging his guitar piece Electric Counterpoint for steel pans, vibes and marimba. He also had other ideas on Vermont Counterpoint, which she adapted for vibraphone and tape. But Kato won him over, and these poetic recordings show how. Her solo on Six Marimbas completes a superb album
