The Queen of Marimba Reigns Supreme
(5 out of 5 stars)
"NAncy Zeltsman deserves the title of Queen of Marimba. She pulls emotion from the instrument like water flowing through a stream. Her technique is amazing and her sound is sweet and gentle, but harsh when needed. This album is by far one of the best marimba albums ever recorded. Her arrangement of Susan Vega's Gypsy is worth the price of the CD alone. NO ONE SHOULD BE WITHOUT THIS RECORDING."
Good Taste in Performance

"Nancy Zeltsman's performance of the works on Woodcuts is exemplary. She demonstrates stunning musical playing and many of the pieces on the disc deserve such attention: Opening Day, Merlin, Woodcuts, Gypsy (arguably better than S. Vega's original) among others are fine pieces of music.There are some less successful tracks though - the Tango Suite (over 3 tracks) is average and VERY long. There is a very broad range of material and as such won't please all tastes.But this is still a beautiful album, cetainly worth owning if only for the wonderful sound that Nancy Z. produces."
