Paul Lansky: Idle Fancies
This exceptionally beautiful recording presents Paul Lansky's complete music for solo marimba, performed by the young marimba virtuoso, Gwendolyn Dease. The composer writes: "One of the highlights of my life as a composer occurred when I got an email from Gwendolyn Burgett Dease pointing me to a video of her wonderful performance of "Idle Fancies". Her performance of the piece was so excellent that it took me quite a while to lift my jaw from the floor." Ms. Dease returns the compliment giving the listener performances that are bouncy and seductive.
