Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rogé and Juillet make a splendid duo, united in the refinement of their playing, producing all the subtle gradations of tone, volume and rhythm that allow Ravel, the fastidious musical colorist, to emerge with shining clarity.

I can imagine that Ravel himself would have been delighted with this finely recorded disc. Pascal Rogé and Chantal Juillet make a splendid duo, united in the refinement of their playing, producing all the subtle gradations of tone, volume and rhythm that allow Ravel, the fastidious musical colourist, to emerge with shining clarity. But they also seize with delight on the exotic features - the lazy Habanera rhythm, the darkly melancholy Jewish melody of Kaddisch, the blues in the 1927
Read more Sonata, and above all, the gipsy élan of Tzigane, where the wild excitement is increased by the cimbalom-like sounds of the piano huthéal. And they produce a special warmth and fervour for the softer idiom of the early 1897 Sonata. With all this it's easy to overlook the contribution of Truls Mark; he and Juillet relish both the lyricism and the more grotesque elements of the Sonata for violin and cello. This is definitely one of those records that sounds better with each hearing, as new delights - here a variation of tone-colour, there an expressive rubato catch the ear. It's an attractively planned programme. too; an excellent idea to have the short items as interludes between the sonatas.
