more favourite 20th century classical pieces - Ravel Piano Concerto, slow movement
Submitted by Ashley Chan on Sat, 2007-11-03 08:11
Just found a Ravel CD I thought I'd lost (his most famous piece being the Bolero used by Torville adn Dean in the Sarajevo Winter Olympics). I have to say that the 2nd movement (Adagio assai) of his Piano Concerto [not the one for the left hand, the one for both hands) is absolutely brilliant...you have to hear it to believe it. [Note the other movements in the concerto are too non-melodic for my taste, even though I do "get" what Ravel is going on about.]
The CD I have is very very very very scratchy, but does have Ravel conducting Balero (it is claimed) and Marguerite Long (his favourite interpretor and a pupil of Debussy) playing the Piano Concerto again with Ravel supposedly conducting.
