Synopsis by Sally Barber
The five-volume set Liberace showcases the talent of the flashy pianist known as Mr. Showman. Liberace, star of television's most popular musical variety show during the 1950s, became both the top-paid and best-loved performer of the period. This series pays tribute to the flamboyant Las Vegas showman's talent, and offers an intimate look into his personal life. It also features a collection of clips encompassing Liberace's wide-ranging musical repertoire including classical, pop, folk, and jazz pieces. Volume two contains songs and musical works including "Flight of the Bumblebee Boogie," "Waltz in A Flat Major," "Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony," "Take Me out to the Ball Game," and more.
