Rose - encore 2|
Great musicians are usually great musicians regardless of the
repertoire they play! This giant of bayan performers proves that
and more with this encore CD. This is music for everyone; it is
not only for those musicians who decidedly want to hear original
music for the instrument by the latest renowned composer writing
especially for Friedrich Lips!
You will find music not always associated with the bayan or the
accordion; in these performances, however, you will believe the
composers meant them to be. Many of the titles are extremely well
known; others are less so, but all are played with a confident air
of excitement and enthusiasm to make you swear you've heard them
all your life and cannot wait to hear them again. They are also
ideal choices for encores!
These arrangements of favorite pieces by some very favorite composers
will bring a smile to your face. Some of you will most certainly
remember playing your own versions of several of them, only I dare
say yours didn't turn out quite so perfectly played or with such
difficult passages here and there!
This is great playing by a great artist and it is such a pleasure
to listen to
go buy this CD soon for you will enjoy it time
and time again. The assisting musicians add tremendously to the
success of several pieces and, personally, I wished they had been
used even more on this recording. The arrangements are wonderful
and feature some really fine playing by all involved! Inspiring?
