Performance:   Sonics:    
For me this is the disc of the year. I never knew Ravel had so much depth having being brought up on Boléro! The performance and sound here are first rate. Some of the pieces obviously demand exceptional skill but Pizarro makes it effortless - so you are transported into this subtle world of textures and colours. Live performances of these pieces seem rare (perhaps because of the technical difficulties) so this is the closest you'll get - I don't know if they'll be a volume three but I can't wait..
