The Chaconne by Johann Sebastian Bach is one of my favorite compositions. This is especially true performed on solo marimba. I will never forget Jean Geoffroy’s performance the Chaconne at the 2017 International Katarzyna Myćka Marimba Academy. Today’s video features a beautiful performance of Chaconne performed and arranged by Mika Stoltzman.
Recorded at Purchase Performing Center (New York City, NY) on 2-28-2018. The recording producer was Steven Epstein and filmed by Mikako Ishii.
