Pianists have been overlooking a treasure trove of solo Ravel: the composer’s short score for Daphnis et Chloé. Some parts of it are unplayable by a single pair of hands, but with judicious arrangement this working draft can be mined for diamonds. Previously only a handful of musicians have made their own suites for solo piano; here Indrė Petrauskaitė has produced something new: a 40-minute concert suite of unsuspected Ravel for solo piano. Indrė Petrauskaitė has used only Ravel’s original material, but she consulted the orchestral score to fill out the textures, and her suite also respects the dramatic outline of the original ballet. The other, more familiar works here extend the ideas of antiquity and transcription.

Indrė Petrauskaitė studied in Kaunas, Lithuania, winning a host of prizes. In 2000, after her graduate and postgraduate studies at the Lithuanian Academy of Music, obtaining B.Mus. and M.Mus. Degrees, she entered the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she studied with Christopher Elton, Petras Geniušas and Alexander Satz. She completed her Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Music degree with a DipRAM. She has given many solo and chamber-music recitals, not least in St Martin-in-the-Fields in London. She is now based in London, where she combines teaching with performing.
