In 1909 Maurice Ravel made his first visit to London and played in a concert at the Bechstein Hall, now known as the Wigmore Hall. It seemed appropriate therefore for this Radio 3 Ravel day to record a concert of some of Ravel's best loved chamber works at the venue where he appeared 105 years ago.
The Nash Ensemble have been playing this repertoire for the 50 years of their existence and they have recorded these works at least twice. they are joined by former BBC New Generation Artist Clara Mouriz who will be singing Ravel's Chansons madécasses for the first time.

Ravel: Sonata for Volin and Cello
Ravel: Chansons madécasses
Ravel: Piano Trio

Clara Mouriz, mezzo-soprano
The Nash Ensemble (Marianne Thorsen, violin; Bjorg Lewis, cello; Philippa Davies, Flute; Ian Brown, piano).
