RAVEL: THE COMPLETE SOLO PIANO WORKS, VOL. 2 - PAUL CROSSLEY

COMPACT DISC

Max Har­rison, in The Gramophone, LXI:731, is quite delighted, citing the "lovely tone," "virtuosity," "wide dynatnic range," and in particular the scrupulous attention to the composer's demands and the obvious careful study of each piece for its own needs. On the whole I find this quite the most satisfying reading of this music I've encountered, and if I were buying only one record, it would be this one for the incredi­ble performance of "Le tombeau de Couperin." --David M. Greene, Musical Heritage Review
