ANTICIPATION. "Completely captivating from the first few notes. Takes you to a place where you want to stay." Michael Kramer, Classical 96.3FM
ANTICIPATION is the collaborated beauty of Canadian duo Sharlene Wallace, harpist and Susan Piltch, flutist/pianist. With the amazing George Koller on bass their music is original, contemporary, stunning instrumental music. The music on ANTICIPATION is composed by Sharlene, Susan, Rob Piltch, David Piltch/k.d. lang, Anne Lindsay, Loretto Reid, and Francis Kleynjans.
"A joy to listen to. ANTICIPATION is the first release of the combined talents of harpist Sharlene Wallace and flutist/pianist Susan Piltch. With relaxing yet powerful playing and arranging, this all original music is up-tempo contemporary instrumental with a touch of the Celtic. Eminently listenable." Renée Gelpi, Programmer, Galaxie CBC Digital Radio
