SONGS MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME
Liberace utilizes the Antonin Dvorák composition "Songs My Mother Taught Me" as the first track of his album of the same name on the Hamilton label, a Dot Records subsidiary. Holding a picture of his mom on the Baldwin piano -- next to the candelabra, of course -- it's an elegant experience with the pianist seemingly performing solo before arranger/conductor Gordon Robinson's strings come in as if from out of nowhere.
