Ravel - Pizarro - Classic FM

Volume one of Pizarro's complete cycle of Ravel's piano music includes two major works, Miroirs and Gaspard de la nuit, and the astonishing piano transcription of La Valse. Pizarro matches the grandeur of Ravel's inventions note-for-note. With the opening movement of Miroirs, Pizarro delicately pedals Ravel's looking-glass textures, while the folksy Alborada del gracioso from the same cycle is snappy enough to make anyone shout ‘olé'. Volume two? Bring it on.
