Nathaniel Bartlett was born in 1978 in Madison, Wisconsin, and studied at the Eastman School and the Royal Academy of Music in London as well as with renowned marimbist Leigh Howard Stevens. As an integral part of being dedicated to an instrument of our time, he is also dedicated to the music of our time - constantly seeking out composers with whom to collaborate in the creation of new repertoire for the instrument. In particular, Nathaniel Bartlett is interested in the integration of computers and other electronics into live performances, creating a high-definition, multi-dimensional sound environment. As he writes of this CD, "One of my main goals was to create a well-balanced album and not simply a collection of unrelated material. The content of this album, as well as its order, was carefully chosen to form a program with a prelude, interlude and postlude, with two featured works in between. With this in mind, it is my hope that this album can be listened to in its entirety, and that the artistic impact of the album as a whole will be much greater than the sum of the works."
Nathaniel Bartlett (marimba); Philip Glass (composer); Allan Schindler (composer); Greg Wilder (composer); Augusta Read Thomas (composer); Steve Reich (composer)
