Music for Marimba and percussion

Fernando Meza and Benjamin Toth

Crotchet  Amazon UK  Amazon USA

Ultimatum II. The Castle of the Mad King. Ilijas. Ein Liebeslied? Northwind. Bayerischer Landler. Trio per uno. Il Canto die gondolieri. Suomineito. Der kleine Paganini.

Sad to relate, the best thing about this CD is the stunning cover photo! Nebojsa Jovan Zivkovic is clearly a virtuoso percussionist, with marimba as his speciality. The whole CD is devoted to his own compositions and too much of this is tasteful and bland, tranquillo etc, and harmonically unadventurous. The middle movement of his Trio per uno is 'an isle of quietness between two volcanoes'. That piece, confusingly titled, is for three players, who often have to work on the same instrument simultaneously, an effect that would be more meaningful in live concert. An 'easy listening' CD, not one for me - and a bit unexpected from BIS.
