Fiorentino transcriptions - 10/02/09 09:40 AM

As many of you may know, the great Italian pianist Sergio Fiorentino wrote a fairly large number of piano transcriptions. Some are actually much simpler than other pianists' transcriptions of the same works.

Below are some of his transcriptions available on Youtube.
I'm interested in PW member's opinions of these pieces as well as Fiorentino's performances.
