Souvenirs (2012)

 

"If you are in search of a disc with great recording quality, a high level of performance, and an eclectic collection of tracks, this title should be added to your iTunes wish list. Matthew Coley’s Souvenirs delivers 80 minutes of diverse works for solo marimba, marimba and piano duo, and percussion ensemble.

I applaud all of the players on their level of performance; it is excellent. With the ease of creating high-quality recordings these days, the programming can make a disc stand out from the masses. Bravo to Coley and his fellow performers for doing just that!"  —T. Adam Blackstock, Percussive Notes July 2012

Circularity (2010)

 

"Matthew Coley plays with a unique musical voice and the effortless qualities of a true virtuoso." -Michael Burritt, Eastman School of Music

“I found this CD to be one of the most enjoyable marimba recordings in recent memory due to its exciting repertoire, world-class performing, and extremely high production quality.” -Jason Baker, Percussion Notes, September 2011 (Click here for full review.)

“Circularity is a wonderfully recorded and thoughtfully put together CD. Matthew's playing is focused and inspired throughout.” -Colin Currie, Percussion Soloist

“I really dig your playing. The most enjoyable part for me is how you sound like a completely different player on almost every piece. This is not easy to do--most striking would be how aggressive your Vinao is, but how beautifully 'three-dimensional' your Bach and Shostakovich are. And great, eclectic
repertoire for the disc. My favorites are Tomb and the D Minor Fugue.”
-Dr. John Parks IV, Florida State University
