About

Although Ravel (1875-1937) was a pianist, and composed his keyboard pieces with a sure knowledge of the instrument and what it was capable of, he lacked the technique of the likes of, for instance, Chopin, Liszt or Rachmaninov as an outright composer-pianist. Because of this, Ravel’s piano works were not written as vehicles to demonstrate pianistic virtuosity as a goal in itself, even if some of them – such as the suite Gaspard de la Nuit – present enormous challenges for the prospective performer.

“always technically adept and fluent” – Evening Standard

“a reading of insight and devoted understanding” –  Birmingham Post

“Throughout she played with elegance, a sure technical command and the full involvement and fluidity of movement of arms and upper body – she brings a unique Personality –  she elicited tones of exquisite beauty from the Steinway Model D Piano.” – Ellesworth American 2003

“Ogdon and Lucas make a fine musical Duo, with brilliant techniques and a sure unanimous grasp of rhythmic en ergy and sweeping eloquent phrasing. Warmly recommended Rachmaniov.” – Manchester Evening News 1989
