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!

I don't like classical music. I thought with Billy Joels it was going to be something upbeat. I am looking for some piano music with some songs I would know.

HASH(0xa629c1f8) out of 5 stars Do I love this album? You bet I do! April 27 2010
By S. Sacek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was never a big Billy Joel fan, and I never purchased his pop albums, but then one day I heard this music, the "Fantasies & Delusions" suite. I then realized that Billy is actually a compositional genius, but he chose not use his gifts as a classical composer. Instead, he chose to write quick pieces, (songs), that would make him loads of money, and probably get him dates. I can't fault him for that, but he has left his major talent mostly unused.

To date, I only know of one album of this nature by him, his greatest collection of works, the "Fantasies & Delusions" suite. A hundred years from now, radios may no longer be playing his pop songs, but surely, there will be many classical music connoisseurs still enjoying his classical opus. Even with this small body of pieces, Billy Joel has made his mark in musical history.

Do I love this album? You bet I do!

HASH(0xa61ee6cc) out of 5 stars Win for a Classical Billy Joel album April 7 2009
By Danielle M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's different than most of his other stuff, of course. But if you're looking for something easy and refreshing, this is definitely one of them. I listened to parts of it on his greatest hits album, as well as the Broadway show "Movin Out" and was impressed by it. I bought the music book for it and decided to invest in the recording. Definitely a Billy Joel sound, but with a classical feel to it. Great for lazy, balmy spring days.

HASH(0xa614de70) out of 5 stars Hugely under-rated album! Nov. 15 2012
By J. Nordstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a serious classical musician, and love this album very much. Are Billy Joel's compositions perhaps a bit derivative? Yes -- you'll feel like you're listening to Chopin / Liszt / Schubert etc. But who cares? They are gorgeous, I love them. They have the joy and melodic beauty you would expect of his work, but are definitely entirely classical. I enjoy putting this album on and having my musical friends try to guess the composer -- they of course never get it right!

I hope that Billy Joel (whose pop work I also love) is proud of these. And to counter another reviewer's disappointment that Billy Joel is not himself the pianist -- the fact that a professional pianist plays them is totally appropriate, I think, and he does a lovely job.

HASH(0xa6100a74) out of 5 stars amazing Billy Joel Feb. 8 2014
By Karen Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have heard criticism that he plays like Bach, or Chopin or Debussy. What a fine complaint! Wouldn't you like to be in that same group! He is amazing. We listen to this so often, always when having a dinner party. People can't believe it is Billy Joel. Most talented man.

HASH(0xa60cc888) out of 5 stars A Great Recording Jan. 24 2015

Great recording. It's obvious who Billy Joel is inspired by from track to track, but it is still a nice listen if you want to hear creative variations on these classic composers...
