Review of WNYC's Fishko Files: Minute Waltz

Brilliant collage of pianists and interpretations clarify a seemingly slight piece. While many feel that they know this piece there's much to learn from listening to Ms. Fishko's report that flows from Thibaudet through Borge, the big easy, and Hollywood smoothly and without dropping a note. Wonderful voice, she always makes the listener feel she's talking right to them.
