What a treat! I have always been a Billy Joel fan and have tried unsucessfully to find this CD in any Record store. True fans of Joel all know what a brilliant pianist Billy is from his pop albums, and what an amazing composer he is.For true fans this album wont disappoint, as Billy goes back to his love of Classical Music (rivaling Mozart, Bach, etc)The only thing I wonder about is WHY Billy chose another pianist to play his compositions? Richard Joo does a fantastic job of playing these opuses, but it would be nice to hear Joel's rendition of these beautiful compositions that he penned. In any case...after a long gruelling day at work , it is a very relaxing CD to unwind to with a nice glass of wine.
I highly reccommend this CD!
