The Bold Bad Bus, a book of rhyming stories from Play Away: 11.60
A series featuring a selection of BBCtv programmes viewers have particularly asked to see again.
Today, another chance to see this young American virtuoso pianist in his debut recital on BBCtv.
He introduces and plays Liszt's formidably difficult Don Juan Fantasy and music in a subtler vein: Schubert's Sonata in A minor, Op 143, and Fountains at the Villa d'Este by Liszt. His own transcription of Bernstein's Candide Overture makes an unusual start to the programme.
