KUNIKO wins Excellence Award
Top 10 placing for KUNIKO
Following popular performances at the Cheltenham and Lichfield Festivals in mid-July, last week saw the release of 'Cantus', Kuniko's follow up recording to her 2011 bestseller 'Kuniko Plays Reich'. The recording, featuring new arrangements of works by Steve Reich, Arvo Part and Hywel Davies has entered the Official UK Specialist Classical Chart at No.9!
The Independent awarded the album four stars stating: '...intricate rhythms are what catch the ear, but it's the overtones and silences that mesmerise' whilst The Observer praised the 'imaginiative reworkings...in the hands of a master marimba player...an absorbing recital.'
