While I’m recovering from some much-needed Cataract surgery, I thought I would run this recital, one of three, recorded just last month at the Celebrate Ravel Festival in Anglet, France and broadcast by Radio France Musique.
This certainly lends itself to calm and recuperation and it’s one of three recitals the French Pianist gave in one day at the festival. I hope to run the other two at some point, but in the meantime, here’s what’s on the program:
Concerts donnés le 09 septembre 2017 au Théâtre Quintaou à Anglet dans le cadre du Festival “Fêtons Ravel”.
Programme du concert
Bertrand Chamayou, piano
Maurice Ravel :
Pavane pour une infante défunte
A la manière de Chabrier
Une barque sur l’Océan
La vallée des cloches
À la manière de Borodine
Menuet en ut dièse mineur
Sonatine en fa dièse mineur
Expressive and sensitive playing, well executed – couldn’t ask for a better contemporary performance. And this one definitely ranks high in the Anti-Road Rage Wednesday charts.
Me personally, I am laying down, staring at the ceiling – seems to work wonderfully well for listening to Ravel.
Give it a try, but you don’t need Cataracts in order to do it. Enjoy.
