Notes & Reviews:
Marimbist Fumito Nunoya has enjoyed international fame as one of the most in demand marimba players of our day. A native of Odate Japan, he is currently based out of Herford in Germany, where he teaches at the Academy of Music in Detmold. In addition to performing across Europe, he frequently gives concerts in the United States and Japan. For this release, he has chosen classic works, which he arranged for his instrument, like Chopin's Barcarolle in F-sharp major, Op. 60, and selections from Bach's Partitas and Sonatas. Nunoya is joined on this recording by pianist Momoko Shano and fellow marimbist Hiroya Honda.
