Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed pianist Kathryn Stott is an authority in French piano music, particularly that of Ravel. This exquisite collection features superb performances of Le Tombeau de Couperin, Jeux d'eau, Sonatine, Pavane pour une infante défunte, and Gaspard de la nuit.

Gramophone
Stott has established herself as a sensitive interpreter of French music with recitals of FaurT and Debussy, and now here she is in Ravel - and in two works at least (Gaspard and Le tombeau de Couperin) which are technically especially challenging. I'm glad to be able to praise a fluid but unhurried Jeux d'eau that is well served by the velvety-rich recorded sound... It's attractive. So are the Sonatine, and the tenderly solemn Pavane pour une infante dTfunte.
