Nancy Zeltsman:
Woodcuts
WOODCUTS coverKnown for her pathbreaking work in Marimolin, Nancy Zeltsman presents her debut solo release.

This recording, featuring compositions from Astor Piazzolla to Michael Hedges to Suzanne Vega, demonstrates why Nancy Zeltsman has been a powerful force in the expansion of repertoire for the marimba.

(Also hear Nancy Zeltsman in Marimolin’s GM Recordings, Marimolin and Phantasmata, and on Godfrey, Schwartz, Frank: Music for Strings & Mallet Percussion.)

“The marimba is a particularly difficult instrument to master and Zeltsman has clearly done so.” —American Record Guide

Qty: · CD Price: $12.00 ·

Also available for downloads on iTunes as well as Amazon, Rhapsody, eMusic and other digital sites.
