On this new CD, the Finnish pianist proves to be a true master of the opera transcriptions. The Ride of the Valkyries in the fiendishly difficult Tausig arrangement will leave you wondering whether Marin has a couple of extra fingers. The Schelling Tristan Prelude moves beyond dreams, while the Busoni Funeral March is earth-shattering. This is undoubtedly the best proof that a piano can be an equal to a full opera house.
