Notes and Editorial Reviews

About this release
Ravel was a pianist, and the piano was central to his art. The piano was the instrument through which he discovered and expressed innovations in style, technique and expression. He composed at the piano, and, unsurprisingly, many of his orchestral works (Bolero being the exception) appeared in piano versions.

Although his entire output is modest – around 60 works, he transcribed more than half of these works for 2 pianos, or piano duet.

Apart from the well known works, this 2Cd set contains some little known pieces – Entre cloches of 1897 was only published in 1975, and was originally appended to the Haberna, now better known as the 3rd movement of Rapsodie espagnole.

Frontispice for 2 pianos, 5 hands was written in 1918. Ravel's mother had died in 1917, and he was deeply attached to her. Her loss resulted in 3 years of musical silence, with the exception of Frontispice. It is a short and very experimental work published with a collection of philospohical war poetry by the Italian Ricciotto Canudo. It is a curiously evocative work, almost surreal.

Other information:
- "These performances from Denmark are all affectionate and notably intelligent and they are powerfully yet pleasingly recorded. The culmination of this set is a fine account of that terrifying masterpiece La valse. Recommended." (Gramophone, October 1988)

-----

For a great composer, Ravel wrote comparatively little, and the current vogue for his music (surely it has overtaken Tchaikovsky's in popularity?) throws up not only more and more recordings of familiar works, but also curiosities to satisfy the evidently insatiable appetites of collectors. For these the present issue offers an attractive addition to the Ravel shelf. The Introduction and Allegro in this form (with one piano taking the harp part of the original) is new to me, and the booklet note is ambiguous as to its provenance. However, it is well worth hearing and surprisingly satisfying in terms of piano sound, especially when played as well as it is here. Indeed, these performances from Denmark are all affectionate and notably intelligent and they are powerfully yet pleasingly recorded.

Ravel composed at the piano and transcribed much of his music for that medium, even producing the apparently impossible Boléro in this two-piano version, and a skilful and stylish keyboard presentation such as this tells us something valuable even about music that seems orchestral in conception.

Of course some of these pieces were in any case written first for piano; among them are Ma mère l'oye and the extraordinarily gamelan-like Entre cloches. The latter is an early work, like the attractive but less striking Sheherazade 'fairy overture'. The culmination of this set is a fine account of that terrifying masterpiece La valse. Recommended.

-- Gramophone [10/1988]
