Richard Moore, percussion & cimbalom


‘Moore is one of very few cimbalom players in our midst and interspersed with these percussive offerings we are treated to his own adaptation of an Andante for solo piano by Bela Bartok on this distinctive instrument, plus an original work by the Bavarian composer Frederik Schwenk…Moore is an accomplished musician and these tracks demonstrate his command of many aspects of the contemporary percussionist’s arsenal.’ The Wholenote
