KATCHEN Bartók & Prokofiev 3 · Ravel

István Kertész

“The LSO has never been in more splendid form than in these two concertos; again and again I found myself having to stop to admire some particularly beautiful piece of ensemble or solo playing. The balance is such that, even in so notoriously tricky a movement as the finale of the Ravel, all the detail van be heard — a joy in so inventive a score. The slow movement is made the artistic centre of the work; and here the tender playing of the long Satie-esque subject, the finesse of Katchen’s tonal gradations, and the lovely cor anglais reprise add up to a ravishing experience.”
