The second Gnossienne has the instruction, 'avec étonnement', (with astonishment), to instruct the player to play slightly faster than the other two pieces. Still has lots of space and freedom of expression.

A tender start to this lovely piano solo. The middle section rises with increasing emotion before settling down with the piece ending very much as it had started in a calm and peaceful way.

Instantly recognizable, this beautiful work by Debussy is calm and soothing yet is intensely emotional in places. French for 'moonlight', this track is relaxing, reflective and simply delightful.

A mood of intense yet subdued emotion marks the overall feeling of the second Liebestraum composed by Liszt. More dynamic than the first and third parts it shows a less confident side whilst still retaining its passion and sentimentality.

This Chopin prelude has the nickname, 'Funeral March', although it isn't the tune we associate with his piano sonata No. 2 third movement. However; this is strident and morose with its block chords in a minor key.

Bristling with energy, this lively waltz for solo piano surges with huge confidence and presence. Requires great skill from the performer to keep up with the pace. Regarded by some as the first of Chopin's waltzes to be published.

A waltz for solo piano which conjures up images of Paris and popular song around 1900. The title translates into, 'I Want You', and reflects the sentimental nature of the track. A wonderful backdrop for European productions.

The first of Liszt's Liebestraums, (Dreams of love), is a delicate and tender piece. Always light and very spacious it sets the tone for the three works as a whole. Wonderful for romantic segments, weddings and nostalgic memories.

Bold and distinctive piano melodies and chords ring out with regal and noble fashion. This is the first promenade in the suite, 'Pictures at an Exhibition', which depicts a tour around an art gallery or collection.

Delicate and tender, this beautiful track conveys a longing hopefulness with a slight melancholic tinge. Slow and graceful, this was the very first work in the 'Lyric Pieces' first book by Grieg who regarded it as one of his finest melodies.

A delightful waltz for guitar by Francisco Terrega. Sweet and bright, the melodies jump around in a positive and upbeat way. The whole track is happy, lively and full of joy.

A bold introduction disguises the delicate melodies of this menuetto. Punctuated by light, dancing themes, this is a positive and confident second movement to Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 11.

Gymnopodie No. 2 has an aura of sombreness about it. 'Lent et triste', (slow and sad), is the instruction to the player. Very atmospheric with a feeling of calm resignation. Huge amounts of space in the composition for thoughtful reflection.
