Counterpoint: Kuniko Plays Reich is a collection of works by Steve Reich arranged and performed by Kuniko, one of the most gifted and significant percussionists of her generation.

The arrangements, made in collaboration with Steve Reich and originally premiered on "Kuniko Plays Reich" and "Cantus," are now available on LP for the first time.

The album is pressed on 180g vinyl and is manufactured by the prestigious Pallas firm in Germany, which is highly regarded by vinyl lovers everywhere.

The LP showcases Kuniko's new live solo marimba part that accompanies the pre-recorded tape of five marimbas in Six Marimbas Counterpoint.

Kuniko gave the world premiere performance of her arrangement of Reich's New York Counterpoint in new York in 2012. She won praise from the composer himself who stated, "Kuniko Kato is a first rate percussionist." Her arrangement of Vermont Counterpoint, originally for flute, piccolo and alto flute, was inspired after Reich himself suggested it.

Kuniko's passion for Steve Reich's music and her commitment to creating the perfect sound led her to work alongside several greatly respected producers and engineers.

Kuniko Kato is a soloist who is recognized around the world for her astonishing virtuosity, exquisite musical insight and expressive yet elegant performance style. Her debut, "Kuniko Plays Reich" was acclaimed by the media becoming Linn's best selling album of 2011, while "Cantus" entered the Top 10 of the Official UK Specialist Classical Chart.
