Marimba When... CD (by Leigh Howard Stevens)

Price: $12.00

Product Information

Marimba When (Leigh Howard Stevens plays the great Albums for the Young)


"Any feeling that this is repertoire intended for other media is quickly dispelled by the sheer musicality of the playing. And, in fact, so far as Stevens's consummate technique is concerned, after hearing just a few of the pieces in this collection, one no longer even thinks of possible technical limitations for the instrument, or, for that matter, of the idea of transcription itself."
-- Igor Kipnis in Stereophile Magazine


"I highly recommend owning this CD if you're a serious student of 4-mallet marimba. “Marimba When” demonstrates how a true understanding of classical repertoire can lead to the most musical and idiomatic translation for the instrument."
-- Thomas Nazziola in Composer Notes
