KUNIKO - Tribute To Miyoshi - The Guardian

After homages to Reich, Bach and Xenakis, Tribute to Miyoshi (Linn) sees percussionist Kuniko Kato performing a series of complex marimba works by the Japanese composer Akira Miyoshi – abstract, Bartókian little puzzles that lurch between delicacy and violence. The centrepiece is his 1969 concerto, a 15-minute epic where the Scottish Ensemble’s growling, unresolved harmonies are set against a highly minimalist marimba workout.
