Description: These arrangements are by various hands (Montmartre is by Kálmán himself), including the pianist, who embellishes them further on his own. Hassan has previously recorded piano arrangements of music by Vernon Duke, Ivor Novello, Harry Warren and Ernst Fischer and has thoroughly immersed himself in the musical styles and arrangements of the 1920s and 1930s. All lovers of transcriptions will find this new release a delight. Alex Hassan (piano).
