Locally-born pianist Anthony Goldstone delights us with A Night at the Opera, paraphrases by Liszt, Chopin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Grainger and others, of Rigoletto, Norma, Carmen, Tristan and Fledermaus and homing in more closely on The Last Rose of Summer, La Ci Darem and The Flight of the Bumble Bee.

This is entertaining stuff, which pleases today just as it did the 19 th century audiences for whom it was written. Virtuoso playing is provided by Goldstone on this Divine Art release.
