This stunning and generous collection belongs right at the top of the heap in its respective repertoire. The Debussy is still a comparative rarity in concert if not on disc, a remarkable fact given that it's wholly gorgeous from first note to last. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's excellence as a Debussy pianist already has been acknowledged by just about everyone who has heard him, and needs no further advertisement here. The performance is outstanding, sensitive to every nuance, but also very French in its clear-eyed sensibility and understanding that focused rhythm and supple tempos prevent the music from turning excessively sentimental or blandly pretty. And in Tortelier, Bavouzet has a conductor who seconds him every step of the way. A similar sensibility informs these swift, razor-sharp, and utterly thrilling accounts of the two Ravel concertos. That for the left hand seldom has sounded so exciting, or in its jazzy central march section, so sinister. Listen to the bite that both soloist and orchestra bring to that descending scale theme, and notice the way Bavouzet shapes his cadenza so as to preserve the illusion of multiple parts played by multiple hands–all without slowing down at the tough passages. It's really an amazing performance by any standard. Even the dark opening, often merely murky on other recordings, has shape and urgency, the buildup to the initial entry of the piano creating incredible tension.

Tistù è un ragazzino che non aderisce alle idee preconcette degli adulti sul mondo. Il suo sguardo inedito sulle persone e le cose mette spesso in dubbio i ragionamenti dei grandi, il cui giudizio è appannato dagli occhiali dell’abitudine. Tistù vive felice nella Villa-che-slende con i suoi genitori ricchi e belli, il Signor Padre e la Signora Madre, e con il suo amato pony Atleta.
Il ragazzino però a scuola si annoia, si addormenta sempre e alla fine viene deciso di farlo studiare a casa, affidandolo al saggio giardiniere Baffone. Tistù scopre presto di avere un dono che potrebbe permettergli di cambiare il mondo.
Nemmeno il grande mostro della guerra potrà resistere alla magia dei suoi pollici verdi, e nemmeno la fabbrica di cannoni del suo Signor Padre… I fiori sono più potenti delle armi!

Depuis sa mort en 1898 sous le couteau d’un anarchiste, Elisabeth d’Autriche est devenue un mythe. Mariée à 16 ans au futur empereur François-Joseph, Elisabeth de Wittelsbach est belle, intelligente, mais devient très vite dépressive et solitaire car elle déteste la Cour de Vienne, la cour la plus cérémonieuse et la plus figée d'Europe. …

This release comes from one of the hardest-working and most respected pianists in the world today- Stewart Goodyear. Every album from Goodyear is released to widespread critical acclaim, and this one is sure to be no different. Goodyear writes of this release: “It was the year Glenn Gould died when I first heard his legendary name. It was his Bach that introduced me to his playing. His sound struck me immediately… a sound that was compelling and uncompromising.
