Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Man lebt nur einmal - One lives but once" is the appropriate title of a waltz-CD that is going to develop into a sales hit. All the joy of life and the freshness of the pianist Lisa Smirnova is present in these evergreens of piano music. Beginning with Frederic Chopin’s Valse brillante, over Alexnader Scriabin’s Valse op. 38and ending with Satie’s Gymnopedie No. 1, Smirnova play herself back into the memories of music lovers. It is more than adequate that already in 1993 critics acknowledged her to be a legitimate successor of Horowitz or Richter.
