In this first recording for Ivory Classics, Juilliard trained pianist, Eric Himy performs an all solo Ravel recital. A medal winner in many piano competitions, Mr. Himy has performed critically acclaimed recitals and with Symphony Orchestras throughout five continents. He has been hailed as, "one of the finest pianistic talents of our time." Many critics around the globe have praised his interpretations of such Spanish and French masters as Albeniz, Falla, Debussy and Poulenc. He is particularly well-known for his elegant and dramatic interpretations of the French composer, Maurice Ravel, having performed numerous all Ravel concerts throughout France and at the French Embassy in Washington D.C. The Washington post has said, "Himy has an awesome technique and musicianship." The performance of Scarbo on this album is virtually demonic. Not to be missed.
Recorded at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Buffalo, New York 7-9 May 2002
