Notes & Reviews:

In his exacting quest for precision, clarity and formal perfection, Ravel is indeed a modern 'classicist'. Yet simplicity, ironly and humor are never far away, and are in fact much more characteristic of the style of a composer whose primary concern is always to be a faithful servant of emotion. A notable feature of this recording is the presence of two previously unrecorded pieces, 'La Parade' and the 'Minuet in C-sharp'.

The Scotsman
Above all there's a sense of enjoyment and energy that lights up Ravel's acute sense of texture and colour.
