About

Utilising to the full the unique timbres of their period instruments alongside a superb Pleyel piano of 1892, François-Xavier Roth and Les Siècles explore some of Ravel’s major works.

With Cédric Tiberghien and Stéphane Degout, two of the finest specialists in this repertory, this disc provides an opportunity to hear many aspects of his colourful, kaleidoscopic world, from the youthful Pavane to the testamentary cycle Don Quichotte à Dulcinée.

Reviews

[Tiberghien] brings his chamber-musical sensibilities and a Gallic suavity to every bar he plays and the piano, a Pleyel from 1892, is gloriously well chosen, the glissandos coming off with ease, while the relative translucency of the lowermost range is a revelation. ... From the first bar of the G major, what strikes anew is Ravel’s originality in terms of instrumental combinations. ... The Left-Hand Concerto is just as revelatory.  Harriet Smith (Recording of the Month)
