Bravo for programming the Ravel - truly one of the great works for piano and orchestra, let alone the fact that it sits at the acme of works for piano, left hand. My one criticism (and this could be an issue of the recording) is that the lowest octave or so of the piano sounds almost dead. Needs more ring and presence to make the necessary impact. But the playing from both the pianist and orchestra are top notch!
