Anton ARENSKY (1861-1906) Piano Trios Nos
1 & 2 - Wilkomirski Trio

Classics on Marimba
WWorks by Bach, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Chopin, Thompson & Waxman -
Fumito Nunoya (marimba)
Momoko Shano (piano)
rec. 2015/16 OEHMS CLASSICS [GF] If you are a marimba fan, this disc should be obligatory listening; if you are not, you might well become one after hearing it.
