  • Description +
      Meditation for Flauto Alto and Vibraphone with gong 

      In the late 1990s I visited Japan. Something that made a strong impression on me was the Japanese gardens who breathed meditation and inner peace.

      The original Japanese religion, Shinto, is based on the worship of nature spirits and therefore everything in a Japanese garden - plants, rocks and water – has a spiritual meaning and represent something beyond their physical shape.

  • About the composer +
    • Daniel Berg is a Swedish composer, musician, and professor in classical percussion at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and at the Academy of music and drama in Gothenburg.

      In his passion to promote the marimba as a solo- and chamber music instrument, Daniel has worked intimately with a number of composers who have written original music for the instrument. This includes more than 300 world premier for solo and chamber works. Daniel Berg is a marimba artist of Bergerault and Elite Mallets.

      As a composer Daniel has written a lot for solo marimba like Mistral (for Michael Burritt), Phoenix (for Robert van Sice) and Yán Jiâng (for  the Taiwan World Percussion Competition). His music for percussion ensemble have been appreciated and often performed like Kroumata (for sextet) and Arctic Nights (for quintet) - all published by Edition Svitzer.
