Impressive indeed! I agree with you completely Mr. Leeson(or should I call
you Dan?). I happened to come across the exact same cd a few years ago. I
bought it and I sure am glad I did. I listen too it constantly even years
later because she sounds so incredible. I particularly like her rendition
of the Rossini Intro, Theme, and Variations. I recommend anyone that
doesn't have this cd try to get it-it's definitely worth the $. Just my
personal opinion:)
