TOP 50 REVIEWERon 3 March 2012
This is a particularly important recording for the Lekeu, I feel, which isn't otherwise represented on disc in the modern era. Earlier versions by Christian Ferras and Yehudi Menuhin can't really compete in terms of sound, and as another reviewer has said, the tone of Cedric Tiberghien's piano really is amazing - full and sonorous, and realizing the beautiful sound world of Lekeu's writing. And what an amazing work it is - passionate and rhapsodic, with the phrases soaring like a nightingale on a night like no other. Alina Ibragimova has a superb intensity in her sound that is cushioned by the piano's broader tone in a perfect balance. The Ravel is also very fine, allowing us to hear the famous later work straight after his early essay in the form, which I actually think I prefer. For anyone who likes Ravel these imaginative interpretations are required listening, but it is the Lekeu that I find really exciting! The cover painting by Paul Ranson is very lovely also, both in colour and style, and is at one with the Lekeu in its rarity, and the surprise thereof ... it is a disc that has been lovingly produced in every aspect.
