Notes & Reviews:

Continuing the collaboration with the Cleveland Orchestra, Deutsche Grammophon will release an all-new recording of works by Ravel featuring French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard and conductor Pierre Boulez. The two artists have collaborated together for years, and even recorded for Deutsche Grammophon together before, and now they give masterful accounts of Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand and Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in G major. According to WCLV (Cleveland), "If Thursday's concert is any indication, the Deutsche Grammophon CD to be distilled from this weekend's performances might also turn out to be a classic. Aimard's articulate, intelligent playing - full of beguiling colors and thoughtfully rendered detail - is perfectly suited to Ravel's sound world... Aimard also seems to take a particular pleasure in Ravel's distinctive timbres, making much of grumbling low notes in the same work's opening cadenza and in the G-major concerto's first movement... experienced live, Boulez and Aimard's Ravel is altogether magical."
