The perfectly-voiced piano ,the venue/acoustic, producer and engineer, and an artist who was born to play Ravel combine to make the best Ravel cycle on disc.
Classic FM Magazine

[Osborne's] Ravel strikes me as finer yet than his Debussy. He has devised the most compelling sequence of works, making two quite distinct and complementary programmes of this highly diversified but relatively small oeuvre … He brings transcendental Lisztian virtuosity and an astonishing palette of sonorities to the fiendish Gaspard pieces.
Sunday Times

An unqualified delight
The Guardian

Osborne gauges the iridescent colours of 'Miroirs' faultlessly and turn 'Gaspard de la Nuit' into a quasi-orchestral fantasy. This is the finest Ravel anthology of the CD era.
Financial Times

Steven Osborne, ever a poised, technically impeccable virtuoso, combines clarity with heart. All a shimmering pleasure.
The Observer

Very highly recommended: even among the greatest of competition, Osborne may have set a new benchmark.
