Ravel Singing the Blues

by Matthew Raley

I like this reading a great deal. It’s not too fast, for one thing. For another, Mai Suzuki plays with guts. I can hear the pitches in the pizzicato section of this movement, something I can’t always say. Though she has a tendency to push her tone, I would say the edge she gets is appropriate and satisfying.
