Editorial Reviews

There are several aspects of this Bach recording that make it special, the most obvious of which of course, is the instrument on which it is being performed. While the marimba was probably ot known in Europe at the time that J.S. Bach was composing the works represented on this album, there are severl facets of the marimba's tone and Steven's manner of playing that make it an ideal "neo-baroque" instrument. In particular, the ring time of the bars and the clarity of articulation make it so.

I love the tone of the marimba, and I love Bach. Mr. Stevens gives me both. His playing is much more than merely producing the notes; there is inflection, dynamic control, and considerable emotion--to the degree that Bach can be played emotionally. I enjoy this recording immensely.

Great cd! Performances of Bach's music on the marimba is truly a wonderful experience to hear. Mr Stevens' playing is certainly inspiring for any marimba player and/or student of percussion. Highly recomended.
