Ravel's music is, quite simply, unique – and pianist Yuja Wang knows why. "In my opinion," she says, "it has the exactness of a Swiss clock mechanism, but layered on top of that, it is about pleasure, pure and simple!" With their combination of jazz rhythms, sensual beauty and spiky vitality, Ravel's two piano concertos illustrate her point to perfection, as will be heard on her new album – to be released in October. It also features the original piano solo version of Fauré's Ballade in F sharp major op. 19. Wang recorded all three works in the spring of this year – in the concertos she was accompanied by the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, the ensemble with which she made her European debut in 2003 at age 15. She has just spent a season with the Orchester as Artist-in-Residence.
