Notes and Editorial Reviews

Viveza takes pleasure in recreating the elegant age of salon music by arranging and performing musical miniatures by great composers from Brahms to Piazzolla. Our audiences often ask which of our five recordings best represents the music they had just heard. We decided to produce a CD which is a model Viveza concert, and which presents new arrangements of our most popular melodies and introduces fresh new material. This recording is our memeorial to Mark Koenig (1953-2006), whose life and artistry brightened our music and our lives.
