From the back cover: The Light Fantastic Players, formed by Daniel Shulman in 1971, is a chamber ensemble that focuses on 20th-century music while devoting special attention to unusual repertory from other eras. Shortly after its establishment, the group began to present concerts of orchestral as well as chamber works. They have commissioned and premiered new compositions and have been honored by grants and awards from the Alice M. Ditson Fund, the American Society of University Composers, the American Music Center, and the New York State Council on the Arts. The Light Fantastic Players have recorded for CRI and Nonesuch.
