One of the Narada label's most successful artists, David Lanz is a keyboardist and composer of notable sensitivity and feeling. Lanz's music bears a resemblance to other pianists associated with the New Age movement (like George Winston, for example) in the quiet, reflective, often melancholic cast of his music. Lanz usually performs on solo acoustic piano, and the delicacy and grace of his playing is highlighted by the silence that surrounds these unaccompanied recitals.
Minor key melodies and subtly fluctuating dynamics, as heard on "Leaves on the Seine" and "Nightfall," are Lanz's forte. Though he has also experimented with strings and larger ensembles, these outing are represented lightly on BEST OF (the tasteful orchestral arrangements of "Madre de la Tierra" is one notable exception). For the most part, however, this compilation focuses on Lanz's fine compositions for solo piano, which rank among the very best New Age instrumentals on the market.
