Quick Overview

Commissioned by Chin Cheng Lin and the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, Spirals has also been recorded by the phenomenal young talent Gwendolyn Dease (Marimba) on "Paul Lansky: Idle Fancies" (Bridge Records 9454). "The wide dynamic contrasts and complex polyphonic interplay of Lansky's electronic works were strong influences in his marimba writing, producing some exceptionally difficult music for a marimba soloist. Both works [Three Moves, Spirals] featured rapid interval changes, counterpoint separated by several octaves (requiring some extremely creative footwork and hand-eye coordination on the part of the performer), and constant motion, where even one memory slip could easily derail the entire performance." Jason DeCristofaro, Classical Voice of North Carolina
