“His tempos, kaleidoscopic tonal colouring, textual clarity, and amazing dynamic range and variety of touch manifest an innate empathy with the composer…These are inspired performances with Award Winner written all over them. The perfectly-voiced piano, the venue/acoustic, producer and engineer, and an artist who was born to play Ravel combine to make the best complete Ravel cycle on disc.” April 2011, Classic FM

CD - 2 discs

Review

Ravel is traditionally known for his stunning use of orchestral colour – but in this new 2 CD set from Steven Osborne, he shows that he is also a master of colour on a piano. Featuring his complete solo piano works, there are the eternal favourites, Pavane pour une infant defunte *and *Le Tombeau de Couperin, interspersed with shorter single movement works. Osborne describes making this recording as ‘a labour of love’ and it is highly apparent in the delicacy of his touch. It has that frisson of feeling that only Ravel can produce, in the hands of a master. With detailed liner notes about each piece and a personal note from Stephen Osborne, this is a great way to explore the repertoire of one of the world’s favourite composers.
