FANTASIES FROM TELEMANN TO TESSA LARK

For her debut recital album on First Hand Records, violinist Tessa Lark plays solo Telemann and her own Appalachian Fantasy and is joined by pianist Amy Yang on a CD devoted to the Fantasy over 300 years.  Three of Telemann’s Fantasies are interspersed by works from the classical, romantic and modern eras – Schubert, Kreisler and Ravel – and there’s a nice link from the Schubert (by way of a shared theme) to Tessa’s own Appalachian Fantasy, here receiving its world premiere recording.  This associated film, including an interview with producer Judith Sherman, introduces the recording which is released on 27 September.
