    Maurice Ravel: The Complete Works for Solo Piano
    Angela Hewitt


    9D4E61D2-D58E-4386-8AE1-A3F7E7B8DA5B.jpeg

    Looking further into Ravel’s solo Piano works, I wanted to add a set performed by a single pianist and I found this set by Angela Hewitt and after a listen to some samples on Hyperion’s website promptly ordered it.

    It arrived today and I am giving this collection my second listen.

    Prompted by the small controversy about the value of Fagerlund's music I thought to play this. I've always quite liked it and still quite like it ... and I do find it more interesting than most of Aho's music (which I find to be so varied that I am not sure I can discern a distinctive voice). The works are the Clarinet Concerto, Isola and the Partita for Strings.

    Maurice Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé
    Pierre Monteux & the London Symphony Orchestra with the Chorus of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden

    8D665771-ED1B-4452-8A1C-D10491BC76D1.jpeg

    I’m really enjoying this performance, the London Symphony Orchestra sound phenomenal here with Pierre Monteux. The soundscape composed by Ravel and channeled by Monteux, the LSO and the production team is enthralling.

    Dvořák Violin Sonata, Dvořák Four Pieces for Violin and Piano, Suk Four Pieces for Violin and Piano, and Janáček Violin Sonata. A charming disk. It sounds great.


    Dvořák Symphonies 8 and 9. I have now listened to all the disks of this new acquisition of mine. It's great. Though, for me, his ninth symphony has overstayed its welcome. It's a warhorse I rarely listen to now.


    Dvořák Slavonic Dances Opp 46 and 72
