Caballo Rojo (CR2001CD) 1996
their "non-dance" recording, Bare Necessities (Peter
Barnes, flute; Earl Gaddis, violin; Mary Lea, violin; Jacqueline
Schwab, piano) breaks the rules of playing for English country
dancing, expanding the forms, experimenting with the tempos
and creating mood pieces.
first heard this recording in a dusk-lit cabin on an idyllic
pond in Massachusetts and it was as if I had been transported
to a magical place. Even back in the big city, this recording
exudes a sense of delight and enchantment, which is a product
of both the music and the talent of the musicians."
