About

Paul Lansky's Contemplating Weather is a new choral cantata commissioned on the occasion of Western Michigan University School of Music's 100th Anniversary. The text of the composition consists of poems by the American poet Jonathan Greene, all of which focus on aspects of our planet's meteorology.

This recording was made following the premiere of the composition in February of 2014 and is movingly performed by WMU students, led by conductor Kimberly Dunn Adams.

Travel Diary continues Lansky's series of pieces for percussion ensemble, and is performed by the work's dedicatees, the Meehan/Perkins Duo (Todd Meehan and Doug Perkins). It All Adds Up was composed for the piano duo team Quattro Mani (Susan Grace, Alice Rybak), and is a six movement suite that ranges from the contemplative to a finger-busting finale that brings this program to a brilliant conclusion.
