Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Everything is expressed with a classic restraint, elegance and economy, an ideal absence of artifice or idiosyncrasy. Rogéacute; knows precisely where to allow asperity to relax into lyricism and vice versa, and time and again he finds that elusive, cool centre at the heart of Ravel's teeming and luxuriant vision. True, those used to more Lisztian but less authentic Ravel may occasionally find Rogéacute; diffident or laissez-faire. But lovers of subtlety will see him as illuminating and enchanting.

How often do you hear Ma mère l'oye given without a trace of brittleness or archness, or find Jeux d'eau presented with such stylish ease and tonal radiance? Rogéacute; may lack something of Thibaudet's menace and high-flying virtuosity in 'Scarbo' (also on Decca) but how memorably he re-creates Ravel's nocturnal mystery. Even if one misses a touch of cruelty behind Ondine's entreaty, few pianists can have evoked her watery realm with greater transparency. Arguably one of the finest Ravel recordings available.
