Full of challenges, from the pioneering mathematical influences to unusual notation and virtuosic performance requirements, many classify Xenakis’ compositions as unplayable, but Kuniko’s unrivalled prowess sees her perfectly realise the composer’s vision.
Pléïades explores a rich variety of percussive sounds and textures - marimba, vibraphone, xylophone, xylomarimba and drums create a sound world of rhythmic complexity and vibrant colours. Uniquely, Pléïades also requires a Sixxen, an instrument designed by Xenakis and customised by Kuniko, who hand-selected 120 metal bars to craft the perfect sound.
Rebonds is a piece that Kuniko has been playing and performing throughout her entire solo career. After hearing this performance of Xenakis’ popular piece, renowned percussionist Sylvio Gualda congratulated Kuniko on her ‘marvellous’ interpretation.
Kuniko is a soloist who is recognised around the world for her astonishing virtuosity, exquisite musical insight and expressive yet elegant performance style. She is renowned for her flawless technique when playing both keyboard and percussion instruments, which blends seamlessly with her profound musical intelligence.
Kuniko’s debut, 'Kuniko plays Reich' was acclaimed by the media, becoming Linn’s bestselling album of 2011, whilst 'Cantus' entered the Top 10 of the Official UK Specialist Classical Chart. In 2012 Kuniko completed a world tour, playing at venues in America, France, Israel, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and Australia, and in 2013 performed at the Lichfield and Cheltenham Music Festivals.
