Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Godowsky has given us a near-perfect fusion of Western pianism and Eastern exoticism. This is quite simply a masterpiece. I hesitate to use the word genius, but it comes close... The extra work on this CD is the absolutely stunning Symphonic Metamorphoses on Themes of Johann Strauss II - No.3 Wine Women & Song. This is certainly more than an encore; it is a major contribution to the world of piano transcription... This CD is a must for all enthusiasts of romantic and virtuosic piano music. And do not forget the other seven volumes in this large and important recording project from Marco Polo." -MusicWeb
