Composer: Piazzolla, Satie / arr. Markus Leoson
In this compilation I have brought together and arranged pieces, that I many times have played as encores for marimba in my concerts during the years, with shorter beautiful pieces that always had a special place in my heart. The common theme for these three miniature master pieces is that I find them also suiting marvellously for marimba and they span from classical piano pieces over swedish folk music to popular music. They are not virtuoso in a normal sense but rather musically warm hearted pieces. I hope that they will find their way too many other marimba players as well and that you will enjoy them very much.

About the composer +
Astor Pantaleón Piazzolla (March 11, 1921 – July 4, 1992) was an Argentine tango composer, bandoneon player, and arranger. His oeuvre revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music. A virtuoso bandoneonist, he regularly performed his own compositions with a variety of ensembles.
In 1992, American music critic Stephen Holden described Piazzolla as "the world's foremost composer of tango music".
Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (17 May 1866 – 1 July 1925), who signed his name Erik Satie after 1884, was a French composer and pianist. Satie was an influential artist in the late 19th- and early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd.
