 Piano delights May 6, 2013 By James D. S. (Villa Hills, KY) See All My Reviews "Van Cliburn was no slouch when it came to navigating a keyboard. This CD is a collection of well known and popular piano pieces such as Beethoven's "Fur Elise" and they are all played with style and panache. The recorded sound is clear and anyone seeking a collection such as this will not be disappointed." Report Abuse
