Pascal Rogé is one of the leading French pianists and excels in the music of his compatriots, so for this special Ravel day Radio 3 is delighted to broadcast this specially recorded concert from the Maida Vale studios. He plays the ravishing Sonatine and is joined by his wife Ami to play the charming Mother Goose Suite, written for young people, the exuberant La Valse and Ravel's most popular work, Bolero, in a rarely heard version for 2 pianos and side drum (Paul Clarvis).
The concert is presented by Andrew McGregor.
