Valerie Tryon - Ravel (Volume 1)

Valerie Tryon (Piano)

This is an agreeable surprise from several points of view. Valerie Tryon, a former student of Jacques Février, returns us to the illustrious epoch of pianists like Lefebure, Long, and Perlemuter. Who is still capable of such exquisite playing with a jeu perlé a la française? Even in Paris, nobody plays that way any more. Tryon displays impressive stylistic accuracy. Her interpretation of Ravel is a model that many students (and teachers) would benefit following. Her respect for the tempos, parsimonious use of the pedals, straightforward construction, subtle dynamics, and limpidity in the melodic line, all make of each piece a real lesson on how to play Ravel.
