5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Feb. 22 2003
I first saw this presentation on PBS TV. Unfortunatly, I did not see it all but was determined to "See It All". The opening by Billy Joel alone is worth the DVD. His greatest recording ever of "Piano Man" If you think you have heard it before, forget it. This performence will bring tears to your eyes beleive me.The rest of the program will give you a cross-section of great Pianists like nothing else you have seen. From the Classics to "Dianne Krall" This is an absolute "Must Have DVD" for the piano enthusiast. Period.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best June 10 2002

This DVD is one of my all time favorites. As a piano lover myself, this is a real nice treat. You can see many excellent artists perform various genres of piano music ranging from classical to jazz, contemporary, and pop. As a reviewer mentioned, I really like to see the French pianist play the popular classical numbers. Of course, to watch such famous artists as Billy Joel, Dina Krall, Marcus Roberts and Labeque Sisters is true pleasure. You would also be interested in this DVD if you noticed Hyung-Ki(Richard) Joo, a Korean American artist, was the pianist who had performed Billy Joel's first classical album "Fantasies & Delusions, Op. 1-10".
I like the PCM audio track, which is always more natural than DD5.1. In between performances, there are some "Snoopy" cartoons about music, which is enjoyable too. If you like music especially piano music, you don't have to hesitate getting this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uneven, but with moments of brilliance... April 16 2002
Almost any pianist or piano enthusiast will find something to like from this DVD, although I doubt any will like all the selections. This is as it should be...a fair tribute to the piano must include music from many genres.
For me, the highlight of the DVD is Cyrus Chestnut's performance of 'Baroque Impressions', an original jazz improvisational piece built from a Bach theme. His performance was spellbinding...I watched that segment over and over again. Also excellent were the performances by Marcus Roberts and the Labeque sisters.
Billy Joel does a creditable job as MC, and his over-the-top rendition of 'Baby Grand' that opens the DVD is also great.
The producers did a good thing by trying to include some living legends performing live: Jerry Lee Lewis, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Dave Brubeck. Unfortunately, as these artists are well past their prime, watching their performances was a little saddening...knowing what greatness they've produced in earlier times. Of this group, Brubeck does well in picking a piece that is reflective in nature. I expected to see Ray Charles here, but curiously a performance by him was not included.
Cyrus Chestnut's performance alone justifies the price of this DVD. All in all, a great way to spend an evening!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Dec 6 2001
I bought this dvd mainly because I'm so intrigued by the French piano school at the Conservatoire de Superieur in Paris. The pianists from the Paris Conservatoire that were featured included Jean-Yves Thibaudet and the Labeque Sisters. I am just in total awe of Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Being a professional concert musician myself, I have one of the greatest respect for him in the world. He is not a "snobbish" classical musician and his playing style appeals to many different types of audiences. His performance of the Grieg Piano Concerto in A Minor (1st movement only) just made me feel like I was floating on a cloud, daydreaming on a beautiful spring day in Norway. All you Thibaudet fans MUST see this dvd.
