Notes & Reviews:

This release is a survey of Ravel's solo piano music, a bold statement from the French rising star of the piano. It includes not only the oft-performed works such as Le tombeau de Couperin, and the Pavane pour une infante defunte but also lesser-known gems such as the pieces written in the styles of Borodin and Chabrier respectively, and the early Serenade grotesque. The album is a tour de force and promises to be a major landmark in his discography.

Bertrand Chamayou was born in Toulouse in 1981. Despite his youth, Chamayou is firmly established as a highly-respected artist and is much in demand. He is the only artist to win France's prestigious Victories de la Musique on three occasions. At 20, he was a prize-winner at the international Long-Thibuad Competition, returning there in 2012 as a member of the jury. He has serious approach and has achieved success with his solo albums as well as his recent recital album with cellist Sol Gabetaa.

The Guardian, 11th February 2016
Chamayou has the right pedigree for Ravel: he studied with teachers at the Paris Conservatoire, whose lineage goes straight back to the composer, and it shows in the rock-solid technique and unfussy, unwavering interpretations he brings to this collection.

Sunday Times, 14th February 2016
These recordings of Ravel's most important piano works are his first at the height of his powers...[in Gaspard] he summons an almost orchestral palette of colours, evoking the protean water nymph of Ondine in cascading arabesques and delicate, darting flourishes, while Le Gibet and Scarbo have rarely been imbued with so much mystery.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
Revelatory performances of breathtaking beauty and incomparable power. Most striking, perhaps, is their unforced naturalness...Everything flows with the inevitability of speech, precisely articulated, direct and unmistakably sincere...No one who loves French music or exquisite piano-playing will want to miss this.
