Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pascal Roge brings both delicacy and sparkle to the G major Concerto which he gives with his characteristic musical grace and fluency. He produces unfailing beauty of tone at every dynamic level... Roge brings poetry and tendresse to the slow movement...

-- Gramophone [11/1983]

-----------------------------------

Pascal Roge, has exceptional finesse without mannerism... [F]or the Ravel concertos my first choice remains the polished performances by Roge, Dutoit and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra...

-- Gramophone [3/1995]
