Description: The third disc of Wallace's piano music concentrates on salon style pieces in the form of Polish dances, waltzes and nocturnes (there are seven of the latter). Some contained music which came from or would appear in stage works, some with Latin American stylistic connections, all with the glittering virtuosity, wit, humor and charm which were part and parcel of Wallace. Rosemary Tuck (piano), Tait Chamber Orchestra; Richard Bonynge (piano - Polonaise De Wilna).
