Editorial Reviews

This release brings together Ansermet's complete Ravel concerto / concertante recordings, with the first international release on CD of Swiss pianist Jacqueline Blancard's aristocratic readings of the two Piano Concertos and Ruggiero Ricci's dare-devilry in the Tzigane.

Verified Purchase
This is another solid Ernest Ansermet reissue from the folks at Australian Decca. This Eloquence CD features the first international CD release of the Ansermet's accounts of the Ravel Piano Concertos, with soloist Jacqueline Blancard and the conductor's beloved Suisse Romande Orchestra. They are mono recordings from June 1953, and while they are no match for Michelangeli and Casadesus individually, or even the the eccentric Francois/Cluytens as a pairing, they are enjoyable in good sound. The star here is the leadoff track, Ravel's Tzigane with Ruggiero Ricci, but it has been previously available on Ruggiero Ricci: Decca Recordings, 1950-1960 (Limited Edition) [Box Set] (see my review). Despite the annoying duplication, I'd rather have these Eloquence reissues with their shortcomings than the alternative of nothing at all.
