This austrian pianist and composer knows the original score - it seems so- note by note and is a highly gifted pianist with the ability of playing typical viennese waltz (only people from vienna can do it in the right musical way...). He reproduces every mood of the original opera in a wonderful pianistic way - opera and piano friends have to have this unsung record..a must! fatspiano
