Notes & Reviews:

Alice Ader's Debussy disc Erato won all the awards in the specialist press upon its release 20 years ago, and is still regarded as an unequalled benchmark. Now, this unconventional pianist at last unveils her recording of the complete Ravel piano works. And what better moment could there be than Debussy Year to present these two hours of music in dialogue, "en Miroirs" as it were, with the oeuvre of "Claude de France"? Ravel - hot-blooded Swiss watchmaker, discreet Lisztian, a mediocre pianist who made such extreme demands on his colleagues - deserves only the finest interpreters: those who take the time to explore his deepest recesses. Alice Ader, light-years away from the flashy gestures often encountered in this music, takes us to the very heart of one of the most secretive composers of his time.
