New Perspectives for Marimba is the latest release by Dutch based percussionist Arjan Jongsma. Featuring works by J.S. Bach, Maurice Ravel, and the world premiere recording of Sipke Hoekstra’s Clio’s Patchwork, Fantasia for Marimba, Jongsma takes a pianistic approach, truly opening new perspectives for the Marimba.
Along with the solo Marimba performances, Jongsma is joined by the chamber music group Colori Ensemble for his adaptation for marimba, flute, oboe, cello, and piano of Ravel’s “Concerto for the Left Hand in D major”. This is the third DSD album featuring the Colori Ensemble that is available from NativeDSD.
Professor at the Hochschule für Musik (University of Music) in Detmold and the Conservatorium in Amsterdam, Peter Prommel, wrote in his foreword to the liner notes “By listening to this recording, it will become obvious that it is the start of a new era of interpretation of great pieces on the marimba. At the same time, new pieces by composers with a keen ear for phrasing and coloring are seductive to the ear and display the beauty of the wood that the marimba player touches.”
