Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This Grand Piano release of the solo piano transcription of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (arranged by Sam Raphling) is coupled with Maurice Ravel's own transcription of La Valse, plus George Gershwin's 3 Preludes as well as his own solo piano version of Rhapsody in Blue. French pianist Eric Ferrand-N'Kaoua, (pronounced Enkawa) claims an eclectic repertoire that allows him to blend Bach's Goldberg Variations, or the Berlioz-Liszt Symphonie fantastique with jazz-inspired pieces on the same concert program.
