KUNIKO performs for Arvo Pärt
It was smiling faces all round when Arvo Pärt came to hear KUNIKO play her arrangement of Fratres in Tallinn last week. KUNIKO performed at Niguliste Church, Tallinn, which provided a beautiful acoustic for her arrangement for marimba and vibraphone. The work was included on her 2013 album Cantus, along with three more of the composer's best-loved pieces. Each arrangement was approved by Arvo Pärt, who consequently became a fan of the talented percussionist.
