Maurice Ravel Volume Two - Artur Pizarro - The Times

Lovers of delicate piano sounds will be thrilled with Pizarro's final CD of Ravel's complete piano music. But the results are mixed: he's too po-faced in the Valses Nobles and Sentimentales, but the Sonatine's lovely and the toccata ending Le Tombeau de Couperin prances and winks with light-fingered panache.
