Piers Lane gambols delightfully through the twentieth century in this album of encores, party pieces and a few pianophile rarities, ranging from Dame Myra Hessís unforgettable arrangement of Bachís Jesu, joy of manís desiring to Dudley Mooreís equally unforgettable Beethoven pastiche.

This album includes first recordings of, among others, John Irelandís Ballerina and Mark Sayaís Offenbach/Chopin conflation Barcarolles.

A number of these pieces are by Australian composers who wrote for Piers himself. His unbounded virtuosity and joy in the music is clearly an inspiration, and is evident throughout the recording.
