“The transparency within Matthias’ music spreads infinite meditative particles into the air, as if we were seeing through the transparent model of an architecture. Whenever it comes to this moment, we are tempted to ruminate and reflect life over and over.”

“Composed in 1947, when Milhaud started to teach alternate years at Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Paris Conservatoire, the ‘Concerto pour marimba, vibraphone et orchèstre’ is still the state of the art in concertos for mallet instruments.”
