Echoes of Vienna
GEORGE FEYER, born in 1908, studied at the Budapest Conservatory under Dohnanyi, Kodaly and Szekely. Being recognized as one of the most promising young concert-pianists in his country, he caused quite a sensation when he suddenly shifted to popular music. In this field he very soon became one of ths best known and best paid en tertainers in Europe. He played in the plushest and most exclusive night clubs and hotels in Paris, Deauville, Nice, Monte Carlo, The Hague, Geneva and St. Moritz. Feyer also had a regular weekly radio program on Radio Paris.
He came to this country in 1951 and made his debut in New York’s famous Gogi’s La Rue where he captivated his new audiences with his inimitable style just as he did the old ones. Feyer’s refinement and taste are the hallmarks of his arrangements in which European tradition blends skillfully with the best in American music. His repertory is literally limitless, and he plays the classics with a touch of Broadway, and Broadway with a touch of the Continent.
Feyer’s debut record “ECHOES OF PARIS” (VX 500) was such a tremendous success, and so many requests for “more of the same” were received that he was happy to oblige his friends with “ECHOES OF VIENNA.”

We have tried to translate as faithfully as possible the titles of many of the selections. To attempt translating some of the German titles literally would be to destroy their intrinsic Viennese flavor.
