Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The best Ravel here comes from Tetzlaff and Andsnes, who find a generous range of character from Spanish hardness to a lyrical, irony-free blues and a playful good humour that banishes thoughts of brittleness. A fine, fluent Debussy Sonata...and Nielsen’s dour concentration is delivered with proper grit. They react well to Janácek’s abrupt mood-changes and lyrical feeling."
