Notes & Reviews:

"If you want Ravel's two big piano cycles, 'Miroirs' and 'Gaspard de la nuit', on one disc, I have no hesitation in recommending this. Whether Himy or an engineer is to blame is not clear, but the pianist is wonderfully stylish, and particularly good at filigree, melting sonorities and all those shadowy, spooky bits in 'Scarbo'... I have never heard the five pieces done better." ***** - Adrian Jack, BBC
