Product Notes

Rich melodies and warm sounds of classical marimba will revive your memories of the old world. This recording is Orlando Cotto's tribute to masters of Latin, classical, and contemporary world. With the help of fellow marimbist Juan Alamo, Cotto records the music of Latin composers Rafael Hernandez, Juan Morel Campos, and Ernesto Lecuona for the first time as classical marimba duets. Cotto attempts to bring new color dimensions to the music while maintaining the quality of the unforgettable melodies. The duo also takes on the expressive tunes of George Gershwin and Maurice Ravel. While these pieces are considered standard literature in the marimba world, they are played with the interpretation of Latin and Spanish influences. The recording also includes two contemporary pieces by Akira Yuyama and Fredrik Andersson, where Cotto solicits the collaboration of alto saxophonist Randall Smith and marimbist Kunihiko Komori, respectively. The representation is symbolic of the dynamic and ever-changing field of marimba. Finally, Cotto and Alamo explores the range and possibilities of marimba in a piece appropriately called Wild Hands.
