Almost every pianist, it seems, wants to record Ravel, but virtually all of them have overlooked a treasure trove of his solo-piano music: the composer’s short score for Daphnis et Chloé. Some parts of it are unplayable by a single pair of hands, but with judicious arrangement this working draft can be mined for diamonds. Only a handful of musicians have made their own suites for solo piano; here the Lithuanian pianist Indrė Petrauskaitė, carefully observing Ravel’s original textures, has produced something new: a 40-minute concert suite of unsuspected Ravel for solo piano that also respects the dramatic outline of the original ballet. The other, more familiar works here extend the ideas of antiquity and transcription.

Janina Karalienė :
Fantastic new recording with Maurice Ravel music! Indrė Petrauskaitė performs the pieces intelligent and original. Her arrangements of orchestral music is very new playing that music piano solo. Congratulations to the pianist for her first recording!
