For the Piano - MP3 CD


An economist who is also a concert pianist? Yes indeed, and here is the proof. And the pianist is playing what many people consider to be the world's greatest piano, right in the offices of the Mises Institute.

This delightful collection of piano pieces is performed by famed historian of economic thought and
Mises Institute adjunct scholar Robert Ekelund, and recorded Summer 2005 on the Murray N. and JoAnn B. Rothbard Bösendorfer Imperial Concert Grand Piano, in the Institute's Conservatory.

All proceeds from the sale of this CD will support the upkeep of the Mises Institute’s Bösendorfer Grand Piano.
