These fiendishly difficult transcriptions I imagine were played as encores, lighthearted diversion after a musically serious program when virtuosic display for its own sake wasn't comme il faut. But here, for 73 minutes, one gets piece after piece of it, each more elaborate than the next, with thrills piled on like glorious viennese confections, frothy and light with just the right balance of dissonance so they never tip over to kitsch. OK the hundred year old sound recording of the first track was quite bad, but the rest are fine. I tracked down this CD having heard on the internet Moiseiwitsch play Godowsky's transcription of Fleidermaus and Llevinne playing the blue danube. The consummate elegance, sophistication and artistry of these two players having fun really cannot be missed. There are other famous pianist who play these pieces on the internet, but once you've heard them, compare to these two, you will see why this CD deserves a place in a pianophile's library.
