"...a refreshing performance..."

Magazine “CD Journal” June 2016 Issue
Suddenly the resonance absorbs each note and the notes melt to disappear fleetingly into silence. Although Bach’s solo violin works usually come weighted with sentiment, the idiosyncratic sound of the marimba and the vibraphone generates the “qi” which is filled with clarity as though it were whispered in the stillness. The driving passages accelerate the pleasure which has sharply etched coolness. This is a refreshing performance which directly brings the characteristics of the instrument to Bach’s music to the point of the two resonating together. (Kazuo Nakano)
