This collection includes Schubert's Serenade, Schumann's Traumerei, Yradier's La Paloma, Offenbach's Barcarolle adapted from Tales of Hoffmann and Tchaikowsky's Chanson Triste arranged by Charlie Kunz in his own style.The Kunzstyle favoured big, many-layered chords in the right hand with a more rhythmic underpinning in the left. For instance, the Kunz arrangement of Schumann's Traumerei transforms a delicate right-hand line into a series of four-notechords, which Kunz himself was able to play with grace and finesse. The arrangements tend to end with the thrill of a rallentando and high chord.Pianist Charlie Kunz had a long career as a solo pianist touring throughoutBritainand appearing on television and radio. He had originally emigrated to the UK after World War I to work in a dance band, but his distinctive and winning style soon led to a solo career performing his own versions ofclassical favourites.
