CD Reviews

Really good music, well-played
Bob Stout | Houston, Texas USA | 01/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My favorite piano album of this sort remains Music Of A Bygone Era by pianist Frank Glazer (ASIN: B000FO4494), however this is almost as good and includes many more pieces than Glazer's CD (there's also a volume 2 with even more pieces). I originally bought this because I had been searching for a good recording of Narcissus. I first bought the Narcissus MP3 from Amazon, then later bought the entire CD.

I grew up in the 50's and this is the sort of music my mother played on our piano (I'm still looking for a recording of Majesty of the Deep). Silverman exhibits great affection and appreciation of the material and plays it with great feeling and expressiveness, albeit not quite as exquisitely as Glazer.

Highly recommended!"
Wonderful Background Music

"This is a wonderful cd of beautiful, peaceful, classical piano music. I play the cds (two come in the set) for background noise while my baby sleeps. That way I don't have to be as quiet as a mouse in the house, and I can enjoy creating a relaxing environment and mood for myself while my baby is sleeping."
Oh my Goodness!
