The cellists rank even the Schumann’s flowing concerto among their most favorite pieces, while the classical singers will meet the gracefulness and irresistibility of the Mozart’s operas on their complicated journey to great opera. Even saxophonists and percussionists have their favorites in music, especially, of course, from the newer music. The Saxophone is a French invention, for Henri Tomasi, it was, therefore, a home challenge. Keiko Abe, throughout her life, the Japanese marimba player Keiko Abe has managed to become a legend of this massive instrument.
