A Ravel Salon

Roy Howat joins Tom Service to talk about Ravel's piano music. Roy also plays a couple of Ravel's miniatures and talks about the five-movement suite Miroirs.

Maurice Ravel composed around 20 piano works ranging from short tributes to major suites. His piano writing was ambitious and original even though he himself was not a virtuoso. Roy Howat joins Tom Service to talk about Ravel's piano compositions. He plays a couple of Ravel's miniatures and also talks about the five-movement suite Miroirs, which will be played in classic recordings by five different pianists, some of whom knew Ravel, including Jacques FĂ©vrier, Vlado Perlemuter and Robert Casadesus.
