sample the album:
"The literature for solo percussion has gone through an unprecedented development since the middle of the 20th century. The debut CD of the Duo Marta Klimasara and Jürgen Spitschka is a representative example for how appealing and sophisticated percussion music can be. It is fresh, unspent music, rhythmic, melodic, with an immense sound variety, to be enjoyed quietly or as background music. When the two artists let their mallets dance over their marimbas, they create unique, warm, round and full sounds. The duo charms a great range of tonal shades out of the marimbas, and it plays the numerous other instruments such as vibraphone, tom-toms, latin percussion, gong, tam-tam, boo-bams, etc. in a unique way.
The artists have received various prizes and are celebrated by the audience at live performances. The Polish composer Marcin Blazewicz wrote and dedicated his work 'Sahay Manush' (Indian for "spontaneous person") to them."-FARAO Classics
