American violinist Tessa Lark has chosen a selection of some of her most cherished fantasies and rhapsodies for violin for her debut solo album “Fantasy.” Conjuring up a world of make believe and freedom, the musical form of fantasy has been with us for centuries, way before the earliest work in Lark’s recital, although she brings us right up-to-date with the form with her own Appalachian Fantasy from 2016. From Telemann to Lark we cover four centuries of fantasies, with four geographical stop-offs: Hamburg, Vienna, 1500 miles of eastern North America, and Hungary by way of Paris.
