Along with the solo Marimba performances, Jongsma is joined by the chamber music group the “Colori Ensemble” for his adaptation for marimba, flute, oboe, cello and piano of Ravel’s “Concerto for the Left Hand in D major”.
Professor at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold and the Conservatorium in Amsterdam, Peter Prommel, wrote in his foreword to the liner notes “By listening to this recording, it will become obvious that it is the start of a new era of interpretation of great pieces on the marimba. At the same time, new pieces by composers with a keen ear for phrasing and colouring are seductive to the ear and display the beauty of the wood that the marimba player touches.”
