Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
A particularly convincing account of the Poulenc, fully conveying the tragic intensity that underlines the music. While too much rubato tends to undermine the natural flow of the Fauré, the Ravel performances are stunning.

Classic FM Magazine
The Poulenc comes off best overall and there's a lovely lightness of touch about the Ravel sonata.
