Description: Almost every pianist, it seems, wants to record Ravel, but virtually all of them have overlooked a treasure trove of music for solo piano: the composer’s short score for Daphnis et Chloé. Some parts of it are unplayable by a single pair of hands, but with judicious arrangement this working draft can be mined for diamonds. Only a handful of musicians have made their own suites for solo piano; here Petrauskaite, carefully observing Ravel’s original textures, has produced something new: a 40-minute concert suite for solo piano that also respects the dramatic outline of the original ballet. Indrė Petrauskaitė (piano).
