Paul Lansky: Idle Fancies (VOL. 15)
BRIDGE 9454


$ 14.99

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.


Dease has the chops. She plays with clarity and conviction with a deft touch for color and dynamic shading.” - New Music Connoisseur


Marimba player Gwendolyn Dease is a superlative advocate for Lansky’s music, bringing out every nimble run and nuanced dynamic with accuracy and artistry.” - Sequenza21


If you prefer a rich tapestry of overtones in your music, go for the marimba. Dease is quite the wizard of her instrument.” - Performing Arts Monterey Bay


As a marimbist I appreciate her artistry. As a listener, I appreciate Lansky’s compositional skill.” - WTJU91.1FM
