I've read that the "Dark Horse" is really supposed to be about how dark horses are the unexpected winners, and David Lanz' Dark Horse is his PIANO.
The books I currently own are:
David Lanz- Solos for New Age Piano that includes his infamous "Cristofori's Dream."
The David Lanz Collection that includes amazing piano solos such as: the "Dark Horse," "Dancing on the Berlin Wall," "Prelude to the Firedance," and the "Firedance."
David Lanz-Christmas Eve Piano Solos
On my wishlist is his Finding Paradise book that includes an a breathtaking "Finding Paradise" piece. I hope to collect his other Piano Solo books in the near future.

I have to say, I love the New Age genre. There is something magical in it's quality where it soothes the soul and refreshes you. Don't get me wrong, I like Pop, Broadway, Classical, Romantic and even Baroque...but I think New Age is highly underrated. People have probably listened and enjoyed a song from a New Age artist and had no idea what category they belong to. Like Jim Brickman, or George Winston for example. When I first started working at our library as an AV shelver before working the circulation desk, all of these artists would be filed under "popular." Do you have a favorite artist New Age Artist?
