 ULTIMATE MUSICAL ELEGANCE September 13, 2012 By William M McFarland (Southfield, MI) See All My Reviews "Clair de Lune is a the very first piece I ever really wanted to play as a kid. I’ve since practiced, played, perfected and performed it at almost every opportunity over the past five decades. However, when I recently heard the Weissenberg performance, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. The aroma, the clarity, the restraint, and most of all the elegance are all there, like no other performance (for solo piano or transcriptions) I’ve ever heard.
