Solo piano works, recorded live in Moscow Conservatory on April 18th, 2000. Russian-only release on the Long Arms label. Pieces include: 'Arica', 'Havana Man', 'Negro Hall', 'The Ecstasy', 'Missigono', 'Requiem For Wally'. "The following pieces appear without any editing of the performance. Large sections of these pieces are improvised and I have attempted to preserve the spontaneity of this special evening by presenting my first concert in Moscow exactly as it was played. I hope in some way my offering of this evenings music reflects the deep respect I hold for the great musical traditions of Russia and the Masters who have reached for the stars before me with their awesome genius."– Terry Riley.
From piano playing composer/conductor/arranger and Music Director of the Arthur Godfrey TV Show Dick Hyman, are these two best-selling LPs 'Provocative Piano' and 'Provocative Piano II', originally issued on the Command label and now on CD for the first time. Piano favourites from all areas of music are here, from Liszt's immortal Liebestraum, "Autumn Leaves", "Heart and Soul", "Deer Purple", the Theme From "The Apartment" and Tchaikowsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. Originally released on the Command label and produced by Enoch Light, this is a musical presentation of brilliantly performed and recorded piano recordings accompanied by a full-bodied orchestra.

It includes seven singles in their entirety from labels like Che, Wurlitzer Jukebox, Piao!, Bad Jazz, Acetone, and Rocket Girl.
