CD Reviews

A wonderful concert of Javanese gamelan
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Under the large pendapa (open hall) the musicians of the court of Mangkunagaran play two sacred gamelans. These consist only of 'loud' bronze instruments with a very rich deep sound. This makes the structure of the music more transparent than the usual Solonese style. Still, the music expresses a very rich range of nuances in this excellent recording, both in the quality of sound and in the musicianship of the gamelan players. Highly recommended for those who know the genre, and those who want to make its acquaintance."
