Zeferino Nandayapa (Chiapas, Mexico, 1931) is a folk and classical marimba player. In Mexico city, his classical music teachers were Blas Galindo, María García Genda, Carlos Chávez and Carlos Jiménez Mabarak. Zeferino formed the Marimba Nandayapa in 1956, a popular marimba band that has traveled to several countries performing Mexican and Latin-American folk music. Zeferino Nandayapa has been a soloist with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, and the Orquesta de la Comunidad Española in Madrid. (Wikipedia).

I seriously don't know why this one hasn't been picked up before. It makes me wonder whether I really have played the ultimate piano :cry:

I can honestly say that I haven't heard Chopin's 4th ballad in this sound and playing quality so far (although I have murdered the piece myself often enough by playing it at home...) :lol:

Thanks for the offer. Maybe I need it when I play too much from the 20th century scores posted here, since my neighbours don't share my taste ;)

Playing too much Hanon & Co. does the same job.

As many of you will know our member jamesWiman is a passionate proponent of the avant-garde with a special soft spot for Stockhausen, Webern and Bussotti.
I have recently been following on Youtube his series of recordings of Bussotti, you will find this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW6OOdEg10Y will take you to the Fogli d'album I. From there you can access many of his other recordings in this series. I know for many avant-garde means scratching your nose and @$^% at the same time but give james a hearing, he brings a gently lyrical quality to the very complicated graphic score and obviously believes in what he is playing and I have to say he convinces me. All credit to him, you view the score as you hear the sound of the piano and you can only marvel at what he brings out.
Success james

Thanks for the link, Brian. That's definitively worth exploring. And my full respect to James for his interpretations of the avantgarde pieces.
