Now available: Anne Riegler's CD "à la manière..." with works of Maurice Ravel and composers that he portrayed.
What do an Opera Aria by Gounod and a short Serenade by Borodin have in common? They both served
as models for two short piano pieces by Maurice Ravel: Portraits of other composers. Anne Riegler offers in her debut CD a perspective on Ravel's music that is unique in its approach. All piano
works in which Ravel names and refers to other composers are paired with original compositions of those portrayed composers, resulting in an exceptional journey through all periods of music
history from Couperin to Ravel.
"Sounds to be addicted to. A playing that touches."
