"YESS music"


Percussive Notes: "(---) ...a stroke of genius. The guitar-like sonorities of the marimba provide a particulary effective accompaniment for the lush, romantic tones of Stahlhammer´s violin. Thanks to the pair´s sensitive, expressive performance and their exemplary ensemble precision, it is hard to imaginge any listener who will not immediately fall under the spell of this music. One can only hope that this disc reflects the beginning of a long artistic collaboration between these two musicians. "

The Strad Magazine: "Swedish violinist Semmy Stahlhammer and percussionist Markus Leoson have managed to turn up a colourful selection of pieces (---) fully exploiting the compelling contrast between the rich, spacious marimba sonorities and the slender tone of the violin. (---) The jazzy perpetuum mobile over which the violin flits in the first movement, Mister Coffee, is both hypnotic and entrancing!"

HiFI & Musik: "Here we are offered known and unknown music by old and new masters. Original, different and mezmerizing!"
