Sunday morning classical music convert in Ohio
(5 out of 5 stars)
"My best friend turned me on to listening to classical music on Sunday mornings. She mailed me the tape with a note to "relax" and enjoy. I am converted and for a new convert this is a great place to begin. Most selections are immediately recognized by even the novice but are presented here in their pure form. Lonore Overture No. 3 is my favorite (piano). Listen and fall in love..."

"I enjoy the two piano pieces performed by Mr Jörg Demus. This CD includes the first movement of "Moolight" Sonata, and Für Elise. Mr Demus' recordings are rare and difficult to obtain, and for this reason, I am grateful for this collection. There are two characteristics of this pianist which I enjoy. Mr Demus favours the sustain pedal releasing the ethereal, somewhat hypnotic elements of these pieces. In addition, his slow and deliberte rendition creates an alluring, seductive quality for me. Not everyone appreciates this style. It is a unique reading, and that makes it fascinating to me. If you are interested in pieces performed by Mr Jörg Demus, this CD may be interesting to you."
