Azzuro is so at home in this atmosphere that I find her readings entirely sympathetic and revealing. Because she doesn’t focus on adding extra-musical flash—her “Alborada del gracioso” is one of the most mercurial, least stamping I’ve heard—one comes away feeling that she’s as precise and subtle as Ravel could have wished for […] Count me a devoted admirer, then, all the more because this CD is so far removed from Azzuro’s first album of Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Kapustin. What could have descended into polyglot turns out to be impessively multi-lingual. Very fine recorded sound from Salle Colonne in Paris, capturing Azzuro’s Yamaha CFX with convincing range and fidelity.
