CD
20 Apr 2015

Barcode: 0724356723825

Composer: Maurice Ravel / Sergei Rachmaninov
Other participants: Philharmonia Orchestra

Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli brings his proverbial refinement and technical mastery to two works composed within a few years of each other: Ravel’s exquisite, jazz-inflected G major concerto and Rachmaninov’s 4th concerto, more discreetly Romantic than its two much-loved predecessors. With his infinitely subtle gradations of colour and touch, Michelangeli proves characteristically mesmerising in both.
