Notes & Reviews:

Published in 1912, Leopold Godowsky's "Waltz Masques: 24 Fantasies in Triple Time for Piano" pay homage to such illustrious pianist-composers as Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy and the 'waltz king' Johann Strauss. The Symphonic Metamorphoses on Themes of Johann Strauss, Three Waltz Paraphrases I. Artists' Life of the same year transforms Strauss's waltz sequence into a piano piece of great virtuosity, a monument, if nothing else, to Godowsky's own phenomenal prowess as one of the great pianists of his time. Konstantin Scherbakov's previous Marco Polo recordings of Godowsky's piano music have been highly praised.
