These are the people who accompany Liesl on the CDs.
Bescarano, composer, pianist and conductor had, in his day, accompanied
some of the most famous exponents of French, Italian and international
music, great performers from Josephine Baker to Edith Piaf, Trenet to
Aznavour, Italian greats like Vanoni, Milly Mina, Ranieri and international
stars like Shirley Bassey and Ute Lemperer to name but a few.
Caio studied piano harmony and composition at the Russian Conservatoire
in Cairo, city of his birth. In his twenties he followed a call to work
as resident accompanist at Italian TV RAI and accepted many concert engagements
both in Rome and abroad. His recent untimely death is a great loss to
lovers of the this music genre which he imbued with his unique style
and flawless musicality.
Liesl Muller pays tribute to Caio Bescarano whose sensitive playing
is a perfect compliment to her singing. A piano solo is included here
to let you enjoy his wonderful playing.
On her CD WIEN UND DER WEIN Liesl Müller is
accompanied by DAVID PERKINS who has worked at Pizza on the Park and
many other cabaret venues in London and the South East, both with individual
singers and with his own comedy musical trio Rhythm on the Wry.
He also regularly appears at the National Concert Pitch performing his
Scott-Joplin tribute. As a regular director and composer he has worked
for many years at the Guildford Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.
