 Scherbakov's piano arrangements of Johann Strauss October 11, 2012 By Barbara M. (St. Augustine, FL) See All My Reviews "An unbelievably excellent recording of Scherbakov's pianistic virtuosity both in composing and in performing. Althoug this CD is still not available, the MP3 downloads come through with professional-grade clarity and nuance. This is one of my top-ranked recordings." Report Abuse
